So very sad that we even have to ask this question, isn't it?

I would say that, since there's nothing wrong with what your doing, there is not reason NOT to tell. But that's just my take on it. I am very happy to defend my position to all of the naysayers, but it can be a lot of work. Hopefully your family will at least me understanding.

Good luck and do let us know what conclusion you ome to in the end!

Be careful who you share with but ultimately who cares what they think.  You are a good mom who wants to educate your kids.  Ignore them!!!!!

I have told nobody anything about teaching Nicholas. I alluded to 'reading about' early education with my best friend, but even though I don't think she would be negative about it, I am waiting to hear her honest opinion before admitting to doing anything more than teaching Russian and signs.

My mother commented quite rudely about how 'some things are just taking it too far' when she saw an advert for YBCR. I decided not to mention those very dvds are under my bed in the hope that one day Nikki will decide that they are entertaining. At the moment, he would rather use LR or Wink for word flashcards.

The only early learning I admit to doing with Nicholas is Russian (and depending on the person, sign language) and this is only because his father is Russian and it is almost expected of me, since I studied the language for 5 years. I am frequently mocked by my family for wanting to teach Nikki things - be it laughing that I would buy him a model heart at *any* point in the future to joking about forcing him to learn maths while still in nappies. Thus I don't mention that I actually AM teaching him maths while in nappies, as well as reading and 7 foreign languages. And I *will* buy him that model heart, and the skeleton one, too!

I'm just not brave enough, or able to win debates, to just *tell* people.

Although flashcards are such a part of our life that I once almost casually announced to my postnatal group that I'd fogotten to do Nikki's dots that morning... I'm quite sure that had I not caught myself they would have decided I was insane and stopped socialising with me altogether - I am already the outcast of the group, being the only single mum, and the only one not using a nursery.

not to tell.
1. negative energy.
2. later they will want to test your child.

Oh yeah! When people start trying to test your child it is annoying and can be a real turn off to the child.

I do tell people. Okay well not everyone.  I tell my parents and they are a little skeptical but nothing slows me down with teaching my son.  I try to spread the word to people I used to socialize with who also have young children but so far I have not found any other mom I know who has or will start teaching their child .  Thank you all for your posts have some insightful information I never thought of like if people try to test my son.  I have had people tell me all I am teaching my son is how to memorize things and he will not understand concepts.  I dont bother to agree or disagree I just tell them I will explain the concepts to him when he is ready to understand.
