5 year old boy not interested in coloring, writting, anything educational
first off i would like to say hello. But i have a few questions.
I know that you shouldnt compare your kids to other kids as far as developmentally but i cant help but notice that my son compared to my step daughter seems way behind on an educational level. So my step daugher has a late birthday, so she is entering kindergarten on a 1st grade level. her penmanship is emaculate, she knows all her colors, alphabets, numbers, spanish. on the other hand my son knows this, but he wont write and not interesed in writting. i tried to work with him he lacks interest. he does not like to color, doesnot want to write, he will partake in the reading of a bed time story. I have bought various kindergarten workbooks, he does not want to trace any of them. My step daugher does not live with us. But im wondering, did i drop the ball when it came to him on an educational level? will my kid be like the kid in kindergarten delayed because of me. I know this is such a lame excuse. But i had no idea that i should be working with him on that kind of level. i was too busy trying to make sure he was up to par on a social level, and making sure his behavior skills were up to par.
