1  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: How do you teach an active 18 month old? on: December 04, 2008, 07:56:53 PM
We asked a similar question about 12 months ago on a like minded forum. What was proposed to us (it has worked quite well) was to use 3M clips and put bits down our hallway and every time our son would go near the hallway we would pick him up and show him the bits. Sometimes we would hop to each one. What ever it took to keep him wanting to look at bits. Just observe what your child does and find the best way to integrate it into what they enjoy.

Way to go on doing the best for your child and not giving up.

Once upon a time, Santa Clause wandered into my garden and dropped his cookies on blue carpet that my sacks of beads fell onto. I picked pickled parsnips from Papa's popular place, then danced deliriously for my baby panda and he got slept under the Christmas tree.

Whenever reindeer passes through the lovely supermarket OVERFLOWING with  laughter throw tomatoes at grandpa giggling away.

We all stopped when suddenly George shouted,

"HO HO HO! Oh, goodness!" Apparently the facetious elves played jolly

We make ours on 5x7 index cards (words) and then laminate them with a homemade laminator. That way they would hold up for several more children if we have them.

You have to remember that Bits help you to grow the brain and not just memorize facts. They are worth the effort.

10  Parents' Lounge / Introduce Yourself / Hello on: December 02, 2008, 12:02:18 AM
Hi

I am a father of one little early explorer. I was caught a little off guard by this whole early child development movement but once i saw how much fun children were having learning at an early age I was onboard with what my wife was researching. It has been a blessing to see my son turn out to be so curious and perceptive. I have really enjoyed creeping, crawling, running, and doing bits with him. There is always a way to make something enjoyable and fun. I think this software is going to make our learning experience fun and easier.
11  Parents' Lounge / Introduce Yourself / Re: Teaching babies - men can do it too! on: December 01, 2008, 11:56:08 PM
Hi. I am a dad of a loving little early explorer. I was amazed by what I saw in videos and research when my wife was looking into Glenn Doman and other early child development techniques. It did not take long before I was onboard and we were setting up schedules and programs. I think this little reader software is going to make teaching and learning together so much easier and more fun.
12  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: getting the dad involved on: November 30, 2008, 11:07:13 PM
Men's brains work differrently. We are problem solvers if something is not broken we do not want to fix it. If our children are healthy and we are providing for all their needs we may not see the significance of showing them flashcards, math dots, shadow bits, etc.

We need to know this is a need because we meet needs, it is our nature. My wife and I have spent a lot of time researching the methods of Glenn Doman, Shinichi Suzuki, the Newells' Family Hope Center, and others. But she has always been the driving force in organizing and applying these techniques to our son.

Those of us in management and team building know that everyone has something to offer but you have to foster those talents and celebrate small victories before they  really become an asset.

Do not give up on your husbands just keep mentioning things until you see that twinkle in their eyes. He has an interest in what you are doing and he loves your and your child/children. This is all that is required. Do not let him become intimidated. Start small.

I am currently learning the violin according to the Suzuki method under an instructor in our hometown. A town that does not have a lot of support for the early childhood development techniques. I started out showing bits to my son and helping my wife make them. I then made a crawling track, a shadow board, and pretty soon I was swept away with it.

I still do not contribute as much as my wife does but anything helps.
