lately dd (4) has been interested in finding about things on line. so i google, finds sites, and read to her, and we look at photos and sometimes little games.
she is very curious, but i find myself getting easily frustrated. first of all, i need to translate to her, and i find it requires more effort than translating her kids' books, when i am reading a wikipedia article on zooplankton.
she keeps asking questions that probe different areas, i start googling new things, and i find my head is exploding. the connection is fast, though not instanteneous. so in those 5 seconds that the site is loading, she starts whining that it is too slow, or askign something else.
i just realised that i could look for russian sites, but generally i find the english ones, especially for kids, are just so much better.
i find myself being impatient, getting a headache, and telling her she needs to listen till the end, after she asks a question, which i don't agree with.
how do you handle internet searches with a 4 year old? how can i ease into this without us being edgy?
