I am happy because my two year and two months son can read and recite all the English alphabet and numbers from 0-10. He can also identify many shapes and colors. And he knows how to sing many songs too. I am planning to introduce to him reading basic words like bag, dog, cat, etc.

You're so lucky with your lovable son. I think your son is a smart and intelligent one. Not all 2-year olds can do that. You should always support and appreciate every good thing that he does. Good luck to you and good day!

He is very interested in learning. Most of the times he will cry if I can't tell him the letters he is pointing or the name of the object. Sometimes if I will tell him the wrong letter or name of the object he will repeatedly point it until I will say the correct word.

I envy you my friend.... I hope he will not lose interest in learning. Keep supporting him. I wish I had a son... or even a girl... Unfortunately, I do not have, even one.

Yes it is good start learning even if your son is very little child but i think it will be suitable for him to hav habit learning things also in a so little age!!nORMALLY children can learn almost quickly and in some cases they take this as a game...:):)

That is very clever. My son is the same he has just turned 2 1/2 and also knows all the alphabet and can blend together to form simple words. He knows all his colours and and can recognise even complex shapes such as hexagon, pentagon and rhombus!! He can count to 30 and add up numbers 1-8. He has always been in a hurry to grow up walking by 10mths toilet trained at 16mths. His speech i have been told is that of a 4-5 yr old as he is able to hold full conversations using complex words and reasoning.Some peole dissagree with me teaching him so young but i have NEVER forced him to he simply wants to know everything and is always asking how things work and why. If your little lad is happy learning then i say go for it, why not give them a head start!

Thank you for your reply. In my son's case also I never force him to study. He is the one who always ask questions and if he saw numbers of letters he would ask me what is the name of it. I think it is our son's interests so we need to support them.

Your daughter is also great! I think we should always support them and encourage them so they will succeed in life.

That's a child that is being nutured, taught, given attention, and shown some patience! My great nephew is the same way. He's very advanced but he is constantly with someone giving him attention and playing him, going over the alphabet, counting, reading to him, teaching him new things, making learning fun for him. While, I do think it is easier for some children to catch on to things, I believe the more time spent with a child teaching them and making learning fun makes a world of difference. Bravo!

Hi! Thank you for the response. You are right that it is important to be always in our children and have quality time together. Yes, when we are at home we always learn new things. I think it really helps.
