FUN i was a single mom, dead beat dad was sent to jail, got bailed out and ran! i had so much FUN raising my 2 girls completely by myself, i raised them completely by myself from infancy! never had to consult with ANYONE on how to raise them...#1 bestt hing to do is NO BABY TALK! I spoke to my babies like adults so that they learned how to speak properly from the beginning... 2 1/2 yo is PERFECT time to start teaching shapes colors numbers, in english AND any second language you may know, or could learn yourself. My kids could tell you what color an bject was in english if you asked in english and in spanish, if you asked in spanish... which was funny, because I am as white as white could be, but since their father was from mexico and about as dark as could be, they were dark, and so when they were in day care and the teachers didn't know me at first, they always gave us second glances... like "OH, i didn't know..." i just laughed and said, "i know, i teach them to be fluent." also my oldest daughter could recignize 4 or 5 of the first presidents, when she was 2 1/2. kids are like SPONGES and take EVERYTHING in...
