counting ... how far? Just counting or also recognizing the numbers? What about the alphabet? My husband just said that our dd should be able to write her own name when she goes to preschool in august. She'll have just turned 4 then or she'll be behind all the others? Is that so? Where does he get that idea from? I think it's a lot to ask from a 4 y o: Jessica-Penelope. + family name? I know you can teach your kids a lot while playing, but I also don't want to push her too much. They grow up so fast anyway.

Aah heck, just let her have fun! If you do too much, she'll be bord before she gets there and loose interest easily. However, by the time they are four, they should know how to do they're ABC's, identify colors, numbers 1-20. When she goes to kindergarten, she learn how to write her name. Now you can start teaching them new languages at age two. Look into Montessori teaching...They have them work on motor skills, language, identification, etc... but again, why? If they are too advanced school becomes a bore and you've already lost them. Right now, they should be having fun! Going on nature walks, seeing a snail, a worm, butterflies, birds, and other fuzzy things. LOL Have fun!
