A little update

Ok so last nite after a dinner encounter with coffee girl and after a bit of drilling from her, here's my little update.

Marion is already 1 year and 5 months now. I am very pleased with her development. She can already completed her singing of Twinkle Little Star, ABC and counting marbles from 1 to 10. She can even spelled out alphabets on the signboards when we were out. Last time, if I see parents teaching such a young kids to learn reading and counting, I would have said they are kiasu... But now I know that all babies are actually smart and they can be taught to do that if given the right exposure and direction. Some research that I read, I've tested it on her, and the results are amazing. My effort has been continued by my in-laws, and my daughter has been absorbing information like a sponge. Lots of people has been praising her as either smart or a baby genius and start comparing her to other kids they know. But I don't agree with their opinion. How to educate babies, it's all up to the parents. I do not like to believe baby can actually choose which channel they want to watch, giving just an example. I like to believe that all babies, with exception of those with specific birth defects, are smart and capable of handling vast amt of information.

Oops I'm running out of time.. To be continued...
