Teaching Your Infant

19 Feb
I am a teacher by trade. But I feel my skills are very limited before my child is even able to talk (or maybe willing to talk is a better way of putting it). I am so ready to start teaching him abc’s and 123’s, but I’m afraid I am a long time from that. So, what do you teach a one year old? 18 months? 2 years? One of my goals is to spend one on one time each day with my son. What types of things can I play with him that will help develop his mind? His coordination? His motor skills?…And please, keep me entertained, too!
