Sweet Advice to Mommy's LR

Posted by Siti Mazlita |

One of the most important thing mommy must remember when teaching your baby to read:

ALWAYS KEEP THE LESSONS FUN AND JOYFUL!!

In doing so, this also means:

  • Do not focus on achieving results
  • Do not force your baby if she is not keen to view the lessons.
Focusing on results tends to bring about negative emotions such as anxiety and disappointments, which will be picked up by your baby. Similarly, focusing your baby is counter-productive and would lead her to associate reading with something negative.

Instead, treat lesson time as a time for bonding with your baby. The aim is to expose your baby to reading and to have fun while doing so, thereby giving her a joyful and loving experience. Keeping a bonding-focused mindset will make you a much more effective teacher, and you are also likely to find that your baby learning to read is a very pleasant side-effect.

Remember, this is not a race!!! Any exposure to reading that you give to your baby during the early years will already be very beneficial.

SO, JUST RELAX AND HAVE FUN!!

THERE ARE NO RULES!

Apart from keeping the lessons fun and joyful, there are no rules are sets in stone! For example, we suggest that the curriculum lessons should be played 5 days a week, once or twice a day. Like many of our other suggestions, this is only a guideline. It is there to help you if you choose to use it, not to enslave you. 

We always stress  that you are your's baby first and BEST TEACHER because you know your baby best.  Every child is different, and even the same child may behave differently at different times! What's most important is that you play it by ear and go according to baby's moods as well as your own circumstances, which may change from time to time.

So if you are tired and want to skip a day, NO PROBLEM! If your baby doesn't seem to have lessons that day or even that week, that's absolutely fine! If you feel that your baby already knows the words then skip them...easy rite??




ENJOY TO BE A CUTE MOM AND BEST TEACHER!!
