I’ve been working with my 19 month old daughter lately teaching her basic shapes and colors. Anytime we read together, I point out the colors of the objects as well as the shape and she’s really catching on.
She’s fantastic about repeating whatever I say! So I need to always watch my behavior and what comes out of my mouth, ya know even though I stepped barefooted on a Lego block and curse under my breath because she’ll totally repeat that too. Though I’m a fan of pirates, we don’t want her swearing like a little scally wag by the time she’s two.
