Chalk Talk: Teaching Your Child: Is It Ever Too Early?
The brain is a mystery, in spite of everything we already know about it and children can really amaze us with how quickly they learn. As far as beginning to teach your child, it’s never too early. You can actually begin teaching your child while he or she is still in the womb. Begin by reading out loud and singing to your baby. Actually, from the moment your baby is born, the brain begins processing and analyzing information. As a parent, you can teach by introducing new experiences, such as allowing your child to touch different types of surfaces, putting a crib mobile above the baby and reading to your baby.
