Remember the feeling you got when you entered into the realm of parenthood? There is nothing like it - from exhilerating to overwhelming. The good times far outnumber the bad and make it completely worth the responsibilities that come with the territory.
I believe all of life is learning. As the parent, you are the first teacher your child will encounter. You have a unique opportunity and responsibility to start your child off in the right direction. Early learning will not only enhance your child's knowledge but also build a strong bond with your child that will last a lifetime.
Bonding with your child is probably the strongest bond you will ever form. Husbands and wives get divorced all the time, but parenthood lasts a lifetime.
Homeschool Preschool - The Early Years
During the early years your child learns to trust you and learns that they can count on mommy and daddy no matter what happens. Building a bond of love and trust is very important for both parent and child. Early learning and homeschooling preschool is one way to create that secure bond in your child's life.
When you decide to use early learning and homeschool preschool you are doing more than just helping your child understand the world around him sooner. You are also forging a bond that's based on the learning experiences you provide. These experiences can carry on throughout the child's developmental years and even into adulthood in some cases.
Our family is close with our parents and enjoy doing things with them whenever possible as are many other young adults. My mom lives with us and my in-laws are only an hour away. The time spent with your children in those first crucial years will pay big dividends for years to come.
When you begin the early learning process and homeschool preschool you must commit yourself to the task of making it enjoyable for both you and your child. If they aren't fully engaged in an activity, or they are bored with it, the learning session is over.
Knowing when to stop an activity is something you must practice. It's best if you learn to stop before either of you has lost interest. You will then be able to have a longer session next time and have a child who is eager to get back to the learning fun.
Watch carefully for your child's cues of when they are ready to move on to something else. If you have to keep drawing their attention back to a lesson, it's time to stop.
Another clue that your child is finished is droopy eyelids and yawns. They have either gotten tired or are totally bored with the activity you are doing.
Homeschooling preschool can play a big role in your child's future educational gains. They will view learning as fun and have a desire to keep on learning. They will enjoy the learning experience and create a bond with you that will last a lifetime.
