u know, sometimes, when you try to hard, kids end up resenting learning and reading, my daughter is 3, and can read small words, almost write her name, knows every color shape and number, and I never sat her down to a desk even once! I do it all through play, her IQ is that of a 5-6 yr old. maybe she is gifted, or maybe she just didnt struggle to learn becuz she enjoyed it and didnt feel bored.
you should work on their personality at this age, rather that education, get your kid confident and always optimistic about life, even the down sides, be4 u know it, your kid will be flying in his/her learning skills....then again, some kids simply take longer than others, but that doesnt mean they are slower, just that they have different or unique interests, your job is to find out what your kid is good at, not what you WANT ur kid to be good at.....I hope my reply helped u even in a small way,
anyway, ur kid is still young, no rush:)
