It is amazing how quickly kids can learn with a little repetition. I have turned our morning walks into an education experience and have managed to teach my 3.5 yr old daughter all sorts of things. So far over a period of time I have taught her to count to 10, the alphabet, the days of the week, 3 bible texts, mine and my husband’s phone numbers and her address. We are currently learning the months of the year and this is one that we have only just started and it is remarkable how much she already remembers – especially considering that I can only do the morning walk on Mondays and Tuesdays when I am off work.
Occasionally she remembers things that I must say that I would rather that she didn’t – my road rage for instance! I have heard her say a few things like ‘he’ll wreck his car doing that’, ‘is that an idiot mummy?’ and even ‘dickhead’ which I have told her is not a word for little girls!
I guess we all have to be careful when little ears are listening and try to teach them good things instead of the worst parts of our personalities.
