  • Children/babies have a short attention span.Its ok to teach her now but in short times. You can just be walking along and saying the ABC's and she will get it and have fun. Reading at night is a good tool, just reading is great. teaching her to write is time consuming for a young one.You can do so much to teach her but make it part of fun. They will be going to school soon enough and long enough once she starts, so don't make it a big deal.Learning now has absolutely nothing to do with a 13 year old flunking. Just have the basics down before Kindergarten wring,recogninzing abc's and counting to 10. Do everything else just for fun. When she gets a little older, you can use this website
