It is back to school time, and it is human nature to want to know how children compare to others and want to make sure we are doing well our job as parents.
If there are fields where it seems your child is lacking compared to others, do realize that it is not an indication of failure for either you or your child. It seems you did not have the time yet to cover that specific field. Kids are curious and want to learn and they will learn whatever they are exposed to.
My advice, ignore all those lists out there on the web, or you may want to read it and recognize which field you want to cover next.
So, what does a 4 year old need?
Much less than we realize and much more!
Here are some pretty good points what you should know. Please read the story on the "A magical childhood" webpages.
