my bug is a strong little one who does not like to be told to do ANYTHING. examples- she was really great at writing her name in pre-school, but once she got to the big bad Pre-K and was asked to write her name, she could no longer do it-“the R is just too hard mom”. or when sam and i use the infamous spelling trick, she can miracously sound out “boy, do i need a cocktail”, but when she is asked what sounds the letters D O G make when you put them together, she has no idea.
THAT is why i love this toy. it tricks her into learning. perfect. my chosen parenting method is now trickery.
