I feel like my kids are naughty.
my dd is 4.5. She loves doing schoolwork. Is learning to write her name, numbers, and the alphabet. I have tried in the past to teach her the abc's. The first time, I got to the letter "e" and she lost interest. now I started back at "a" and we are on "d" but she insists its a "b". we do cut-outs of the letter, think of things that begin with said letter, etc. I am not sure how much she is absorbing.
My youngest is 2.5, and yes, she tries to get all the attention. i occupy her with puzzles, etc.
But, my older dd will do good, then all of a sudden, she is sitting on the table. I am wondering if its too soon to *think* my kids have ADD or ADHD. DH has this, among other stuff and I wonder if theyr are going thru a phase.
IDK, my dd, Vanessa, is highly emotional! I have even thought that maybe she shows signs of ODD...
just for clarification-------I AM NOT ONE TO LABEL, AND LABELS MEAN NOTHING REALLY TO ME...
its just that i have looked up on her emotional outbursts etc. she cries easily, is easily offended, (like if i correct her behavior she will scream, and run to her room saying nobody loves her)
I have 1 boy, who is 10, and he is pretty mellow compared to my girls, a little emotional as well, but not too much.
so, is just a gender difference here or what?
should I lay back on teaching her?
she is the one who will go get her books and say its school time
she loves to learn, but Im not sure if she is retaining alot.
she was also "late" to speak, according to the doc, who wanted her to see a speech therapist, but i worked with her at home, and eventually she started to speak.
