What age should my child start to grasp colours??
My daughter is nearly 2years old now. We have been trying to teach her colours since she was 12months old, but she still has absolutelt no idea what we are going on about?? She is very forward for her age, was walking at 9months, has been taliking very coherently since 12months, knows her numbers to 12, can say the alphabet. We repeat the same things over and over again everyday, like you have a Red coat, you have blue gloves. But when we ask her what colour they are she says Black,everything is black. We go out and we will say Red car, Blue car, Green car, and then say to her when another red car passes, what colour is that car and she will say Black. She started saying black as our cat is black, and she adores our cat, so we started saying, Bobby is a black cat, and we thought that she had grapsed that colour as was starting to pick out the odd few things that were black. But then the other day we were coming home walking down our road and a ginger cat came running out and she pointed at it saying bobby, bobby. She obviously thought that was our cat! Bless her. We will still keep trying to teach her, but just wanted peoples opinions please, nice comments though! Oh and we have decided to just focus on one colour for now and try to name all the yellow things we see
