My 6 yr. old daughter is currently learning to read. She is socially advanced (mature) very artistic and excels in sports. Although she exceeds all expectations in these areas, she can't seem to remember simple words she just read in a sentence previous. Are there any vitamins that would help her memory or ability to focus that I could add to her diet?
Mama t.m., I love this subject as well and have all 3 of Peggy Kaye's books. Excellent!!
I've also heard about crawling being important for reading AND that it's never too late: they are making ADULTS with dyslexia crawl!!!!
Reading Mama to Many's post about brain development of toddlers made me realize what caused the behavioral problem in my two-year old son. I have been busy working at home that I just let him watch TV until I'm done - and that's more than 2 hours a day! The words that he can speak clearly are Mama and bye, the rest are still gibberish that we cannot understand until he points on something he wants.
I tried reading books to him but he won't sit and listen. He loves playing in the yard outside digging dirt and picking up stones though, but my husband does not want him to do that so there's always crying when my son does not get his way. My son is the type who is impatient, demanding, and cries most of the time.
I am happy to found Mama to Many's tips as now I have learned what can help my son get the proper brain and emotional development that has been tried and tested by someone who have years of experience in raising 9 children.
Me and my husband have lots to change in how we interact with our son because what we are doing right now has been doing him more harm than good.
Thanks for this post!
