My 4 Year Old Can Read

My little boy learned the alphabet all by himself by heart before he turns 3. Credit goes to  VTech Learning Laptop, his constant companion since he was a baby. He started schooling at age 3 and doing pretty good in class but when we moved to another State, he stopped  schooling. He is  not allowed to go to kindergarten yet because of his age, school only accept 5 years old and I also enrolled him in head start but he is on a waiting list until  now. So, as a mother,  I have to teach him at home to not to waste his time.

Parenting: A Never-Ending Responsibility

What is a parent? Everyone have their own definition or understanding of what a parent is or should be. Our meaning to it largely depends on our own beliefs, orientation or sometimes our own experiences in life. Even our society or the media in particular would try to instill in us their own definition of a parent. Because of this, the definition of parent has become somewhat tainted and obscured.
