Parenting Teenagers

Teenage is a very difficult time for kids themselves as well as their parents. The kids no longer remain kids and they are yet to become adults. Challenge courses, peer pressure, and the emotions make them stressful. During this time, in order to guide teenagers, parents need to connect with them, pay much care and caution.

Play and Learn

This weekend I found an online interesting resource, which has fun games, ABC song, animal identify game(let the kid chose the right animal by its sound), color the picture etc. My 3-year-old daughter really enjoyed them so much, and even did not want to go to bed. At first, I sat with my daughter, showed her how to do it, then let her play with the mouse. We learnt counting 1-5, letters “A”,”B”,”C” and painting with 5 colors. This is my first time using this kind of online program I do feel it is for “play and learn” , which meets little kids’ needs, and I had fun too.

I want to share with all of you. The good link is for infants, toddlers and preschools. Enjoy with your kids!
