What To Teach Young Children At Home

I saw this image circulating around facebook lately. For teens, this is the perfect post. Now with me having young children, I had to shake my head at this. However wonderful ideas these are, it’s very hard to teach these things to my three-year-old. So I started to think….what are some things I could do to teach my young children some life skills? What are some age-appropriate lessons that young school-aged kids can’t learn at school? Well, here is what I came up with.

 

Babies


 

How to feed themselves with utensils (6 months +)

How to walk

How to build a tower with blocks

How to play patty-cake, miss mary mack

Teach to hum nursery rhymes

Teach how to use toys (shake the rattle, etc)


Toddlers


 

How to wipe up spîlls

Life cannot be broken down into boxes and contained spaces. We are holistic beings, life is dynamic! Learning and educational opportunities are all around!
