I see it too often: let them be kids. They're too young to learn that. I'm not worried about teaching them letters/ colors/ etc at a young age. Just let them play.
Parents don't have to force their young children to sit in workbooks at a young age in order to teach them, either.
It is possible to do both! Teach them while they play. Feed them knowledge while their brains are absorbing absolutely everything. Don't pressure them to learn, but don't hold back information just because they're "too young"
I want more for my children. I want them to think critically and embrace learning. Our activities are always fun, and people are shocked with how much they know. Sometimes they surprise me, too!
For those with toddlers: Do you teach through play? Or do you not teach at all?
