Why do most moms say things like, my child is gifted and i dont do any work they picked it up on their own. My son is just turning 3 and early steps wants to test him already for gifted children. Last academic test he tested, late age 5 early age 6 (im currently waiting to receive the full brake down of the test in the mail).
Now I read with my son everyday, we play together, i taught him his alphabet, and counting. He understands everything i say to him, I got him a violin teacher so he could learn. I taught him to play chess by teaching myself and him at the same time. He does learn fast. I dont understand why most moms say 'i never taught him how to count,ect' I dont consider TV a parent and i only use it as back up teaching tool when im cooking/cleaning. And you have to teach your child show your child, or they wouldn't know anything. I know lots of children that sit in front of the TV all day and they don't seem to even know the basics, like colors. I'm just trying to say if you put in alot of leg work dont be worried to admit it, hold your head up high and say 'yes everyday im interacting with my child/ being their teacher and parent'.
