I guess I'm just wondering if I need to more or different things with my 1 year old to teach and stimulate him.
I have only one child so far. I stay home with him full time. We may not be able to put him in preschool, so I may be the only educator til Kindergarten.
He's been slow on the movement thing - sat up well on time, but rolled over at 6 months, scooted at 11 months, cruised at 11 months, crawled (modified his scoot, basically) at 12 months. No walking or talking yet. I speak Spanish to him, DH speaks English. We have play date once a week with 2 others his age (who are way ahead of him on movement, at every stage, and are also saying some words now.) It's winter here and too cold for walks/park outings.
We basically play together, he plays independently while I do chores, or while I'm on the computer in the same room. We read a couple of books 2-3 times a day before naps and bed. I want to make sure I'm doing all I can to help his development. I feel like maybe there are activities targeted to learning I don't know about?
Advice/ideas welcome! Also would love to hear what you do with your 1 year old during the day.
