Natural Growing

Love this book even though just a few chapters....

It serves as a reminder for me NOT to be so forwarding towards baby's growth. Just in case I become a 'kiasu' parent. I don;t know what kind of parent I am too ;D Wondered what type of parents my friends are too.

Though this book encourages total natural growing up ie. no need DVD or flash cards per say, we just need to learn how to strike a balance. Most parents now expect their children to read or play volin by the age of 3 or 4 which is very stressful for the toddlers. There is one example cited in this book - Learning can be through daily activities ie. counting cutlery or blocks than shortcut learning through DVDs and flash cards. Yeah!
