A lot of people say it's a waste of money and will just mess your child up for when they actually go to school because it's just memorization. But isn't a lot of reading just memorization?
My daughter is in school and is learning to read and it's a lot of just plain old memorizing. So how would memorizing before they start school "mess them up"? Not that I have a need or a huge desire for my baby to know how to read, just wondering why it's so bad.

ALL OF what they learn at first is just memorization. I had the Your Baby Can Read system. I thought it would be great. It has worked, my kids can read. Would I buy it again? No. My husband and I both thought that it would also teach them phonics but instead it just teaches them a few select words. I would have preferred for them to teach about the ABCs first but it didn't. I wouldn't recommend it, no.
