Re: Article about early education.
I love this too! Thank you so much for posting!
I am all for "teachable moments" - my two year old is fascinated with the idea of space at the moment (due to watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Space Adventure), so we put up pictures of the planets around the living room. She loves to look at them and ask "what is that", so we talk about them. When she gets tired of them, we will put them away - we are not pushing any knowledge on her, or expecting her to memorize the names or anything, just giving her the opportunity to explore an interest.
Similarily, we never sit down and "learn" - we learn while we are doing things.
