My two year old son knows hes colors, shapes, animal sounds, body parts, the alphabet, and he can count to twenty in English and to ten in Spanish and French, and he speaks in full sentences among many other things.
This is not me bragging about my son because while I think the world of him, I don't think is more advanced or gifted than any other child.
The reason he knows these things is because I work with him and not on a daily basis but an all the time basis. And before you ask I'm not a stay at home mom, I go to work just like most single mother but I still find the time to make my sons education a priority!
I guess this is less of a question and more of a rant about mothers who wait for preschool for their children education to start. Feel free to weigh in on what I've said to either agree with me or call me a a total bitch! I'm interested other mothers opinion in the matter.

You really need to get off your high horse, for reals. Just because a child cannot do all those things you listed does NOT mean they are less than your son, or that the parents are "bad mothers". I know of children who far exceed what your child is doing at the same ages - that doesn't discredit your child's knowledge nor does it make the other children superior to your child. Seriously, just be a mom to your kid and do what you feel is right for him. Remember that they are only little just this once; don't waste away your time comparing your kid to others. And don't dare think you have the right to call other moms "bad" because your kid can count to 10 in French.....which, btw, is useless at this age.

Maybe you should reread what you wrote. It definitely came off as snotty. You also stated feel free to call you a bitch to so don't get mad when they do. Or find it "funny" which is what most people say when they get offended.
