My son just turned 3 in Nov but he has zero interest in learning games or activities.. he doesn't know his alphabet, his preschool teacher says he has so much trouble staying on task and very little interest.. he's been through ECI and shows only Anxiety being an Issue.. but he just doesn't care.. We have books and letters for the Fridge, fun activity books that have puzzles and dry erase board and all - we sing songs- he just doesn't care.. is it too young to REALLY worry about this?? I mean I know it all comes in time but we struggled so hard in school and I'd like to learn tools for it to be easier for my son

He will be absorbing a lot of things through talking, singing, and playing games (not necessarily "educational" games). If you just mention letters, colors, numbers often he will pick up on some of them and when he's ready he will take off with it. You can slip in colors or counting when you are playing with blocks, cars or trains. You can talk about letters while you are shopping. If there are several items on your shopping list that start with the same letter point out a few and ask him if he sees more that start with that letter. He may not want to participate at first, but if you keep doing it and act excited he may want to join in, and once he has some success with it he will want to do it more. At 3, pencil to paper activities are not nearly as important as learning from everyday activities. Ask Daddy to try to snaek in some "learning" in his play time too. He might also enjoy playing "school" with his cousin.
