I was at the park yesterday with a friend whose son turned two in December. She is bragging about how he knows all of the letters of the alphabet and how she is now teaching him to read. The kid can hardly talk. Anyways, their whole day seems to be spent around her teaching him, and she brags like it makes her a better mom. My daughter turned 3 a month ago and knows over half her letters and I haven't and don't plan on teaching any to her for a few years. If she learns them, great, but we focus on rhythm and play and being outside and letting her be little. And I am the one who gets the strange looks.
Hahaha. I think it's crazy when you see BABY toys and all of them have letters and numbers. WTH???
