My little boy is growing up sooo fast! Too fast! In 1 more week’s time, he will be 18 months’ old!
He used to be docile, very mild, accommodating, easy-going…
Look at his big round innocent eyes… But don’t be deceived!
I mean he’s generally still a good boy but…
He does have an attitude!
He wants to have his choices (hmm… blackberry or iphone??) and once he’s made up his mind, he only wants it HIS way!
No questions about it.
And we as parents are happy about it. It’s a sign of growing up.
Julien is much more active, aware and engaging now. It’s so much more fun for us to interact with him now! Though he has not really learnt how to speak at all (rather, he does not want to try to speak), he understands words like ‘catch’, ‘let’s go’, ‘blanket’, ‘bathe’, ‘carry’ etc.
A friend of ours recommended sending kids to childcare at the age of 2-3 years only. The rationale was that kids younger than that would not be able to engage and learn anything much. Sending the kid to pre-school early just means spending alot of $$ to entertain him.
But we are just so tempted to send our active and bored Julien sooon. I am thinking if he goes to class now, he not only learn to socialize with other kids, he would pick up soft skills and might start to learn to speak faster too.
Well, we shall wait a little longer and assess the situation. Parents, what is your take on this? Should we send our kids to school early?
