It’s such a blessing to be part of mommy groups in FB. The online world is full of supportive and enriching parents ready to help other new parents in raising their children. Parenting style nowadays is going back to the basics. Breastfeeding is the norm. Moms choose to be a WAHM so that they can be with their children. Dads are more involved. Most parents are now considering homeschooling for their children.
Gwen is 2 years old and this summer, we’re planning to enroll her in a toddler school just to see if she’s ready. Aside from that, we are all running of ideas what to teach her. She knows her ABC too well, she knows the colors, shapes and numbers, she mastered all the nursery rhymes on YouTube, she memorized it well that she recites them in a poem/monologue style sometimes, she’s already bored. Now, I just let her use her magnetic sketchpad to practice her on holding a pencil.
At this point, I don’t know what else can a 2-year-old can learn and what else can a clueless mommy teach her. So I’m attending this parenting seminar called “You Are Your Child’s First and Best Teacher” by Mariel Uyquiengco of The Learning Basket to be held at the Medela House on March 23, 2013, 9 to 11 am.
