Article about early education.

Becuase I see posts here fequently about early (preschool) education. "What can I do with my 2 (or 3 or even 4) year old?" often rubs me wrong. I wanted to share a blog post that really resonated with me.

My kids, even the older ones learn best when they are allowed to explore what they are curious about. Yes I try to plant seeds, and am far from an unschooler, but I am prepared at any time to freeze right where we are and follow any bunny trail that may pop up. I see nothing wrong with me having it in my head that my 3 year old should know his colors (which he does), but I have never said ok, lets learn the colors of these crayons. He learned they because we talk about the world around us, we play and well we color which leads to giggles about how he colored that boy's hair blue and his skin green and what color is our skin and hair.
