Parents, especially those with newborns, will appreciate this piece.

Let’s just launch right into things.

Rome wasn’t built in a day.

You won’t instantly know everything there is to know about your baby. You’ll learn as you go. This is a big change! You came out of the hospital with an entire extra person to add to your family.

Just like meeting a new co-worker, you have to hang out with them a little and get to know them.

“Learning German? When am I ever going to use that in a job?!”

As a young language geek, that’s the kind of refrain I heard regularly in my high school German classes. And it’s an attitude that’s often reflected by parents, teachers, politicians and the community at large.

We’ve come to think of education in narrow, often utilitarian terms and — as such — we’re in danger of ignoring some of the most important learning opportunities there are.

math wiz 1

Understanding math begins with a solid exploration of your child’s world around them. By creatively playing with your child through their dominant learning sense, you will ensure that their mathematical base is solid and understood.

Tactile children like to help so make the most of everyday activities such as tidying up. Rather than putting toys in the same place and the same way, mix it up and have it be a learning experience. For example, today you may ask them to put all the trucks in one basket, or all the red dresses together and tomorrow the cars go in the basket and blue items get placed together.

Even mundane things like tidying the shoes can be a learning experience.
