my 4 year old shuts down emotionally when I mention abc's or numbers....

We don't pressure. He loves writing just random letters on paper but I try to have him write his name and he just shuts down and gets mad. What can I do to help?

  • Has he ever been to a preschool class? Maybe he'd feel more interested and eager if he were learning with other children. Otherwise, I would just let him learn at his own pace.

  • He hasn't been to preschool , he's home with me. That's actually an idea I've been tossing around and it sounds like that would help alot. Thanks.

  • I agree. The sight of other children eager to learn might give him a little nudge of interest. GL
