Reply to Feeling like I'm not doing enough...

From 12 mo we always explained things to him.. ex: roll the blue ball or do you see the red truck. We explain it all so he know what it is, or what it does. He’s 3 now, and just earlier he got in trouble for slamming the doors. He didn’t understand why it was dangerous until I put his fingers in the door to show him how it can hurt him or others I obviously didn’t close the door on his fingers, but it helped him to understand vs just saying don’t do that. Same with colors, numbers & letters. If you incorporate it into your everyday life it’s easy & fun.
