Many people have been deceived by Little Tiger's angelic face.(You don't have to agree o.O) Nope, he isn't always the cute little munchkin pictured in Tot school. Occasionally these happens during home practice sessions:
Opening drawers and chosing his own tools.
Throws Mr Bear on the floor and climbs onto the chair. He thinks this is really funny.
Sometimes, he chews the flashcards. Occasionally, the Tiger will attack the paperbacks.
He has a preference for math and music. He usually starts signing water, food and sleep during vocabulary lessons. Rascal...
Defiance is the way a child exert his autonomy. Toddlers do not grasp the concept of 'No'. They need to test the boundary and your patience along the way. It's part of their journey to achieving independence. I love the book Positive Discipline: The First Three Years by Jane Nelson. Will share some of my notes soon.
So, what do I do when Little Tiger turns into Little Monkey? Well, after I rescue the books, I sit back and enjoy the mess. That's what early education is all about. LOVE. At the end of the day, you must remember that learning starts from the heart.
This weekend we are planning to do foot painting for Art & Craft Sunday.
