Re: Starting, totally overwhelmed.
I'm another in the 2 is too young for school group. I honestly think 5 is young for school. At 2 just reading and playing together is more than enough. Play with play dough, do puzzles, and make sure to make plenty of time to read and explore the world around you. I'm big on trying to get outside every day and explore. Look for bugs, play in the grass, dig in the dirt and if you find something you are really interested in you can find books about it to read. Just don't push it. 1hour is a long time for a 5year old.
