This post has nothing to do with the picture or the title.
This post is really about my hubby’s niece. Her mum (my SIL) is busy teaching her double-digit numbers (or rather trying to figure out how to teach her). She is at that age where she thinks she is smarter than everyone around her – you know that age 3 going on 30. Her school has taught them up to 10. So her mama decides let’s get ahead of the curve and learn 11 to 20.
Well, let’s just say it is not going as planned. She argues with her poor mama all the way and can’t understand why “one and one” is suddenly 11 (eleven) or “one and two” is 12 (twelve). The response is always the same – ” No mommy, not eleven, it is one and one” ” No momm, not twelve, it is one and two” You get the gist. She is not totally wrong, because 11 is really one and one. And she is one head strong girl…. I have told the mom to check for apps that might help or look for a DVD or just keep on teaching and hope she gets it eventually. No part of parenting is easy…..
It did make for a good laugh 😆 😆 😆 though I know my SIL doesn’t think it’s funny.
Any tips ? Please share if you have any secret formula that worked for you
Hope you are having a good week so far?
