children learn a lot just by observing adults. sing and dance with them, draw and colour for them. read to them when they are babies. they don't need expensive toys - most of which are wasted on them. talk to them like they are intelligent people (no goo-goos and gaa-gaas), and show them things in their surroundings. they understand a lot even when they cannot talk.

we should encourage the children to play with other kids as this inculcates the habit of sharing among them.

Country: india
children generally tend to copy their parent's actions. they try to repeat what their parents say. so the parents need to sit with the child and talk to them. though the infants cannot talk, they just look at you and make some noise. allow the child to say something and repeat the same after her. this will help the child to be more confidence.

children learn about the world from play. with the help of parents they can learn a lot. as long as they are taught to share they will learn from other children who are playing as well!

my son is 13 month old. i have joined him in day-care center when he was 6 weeks old. i just cannot imagine myself he has learned lot of things from day-care center. at age 13 months he has a vocabulary of 50 sounds and words. i recommend other parents to encourage the children to computers at very young age. now, he know how to turn the computer on, he uses the mouse to start his computer educational cd's. he will click on objects and it makes sound, he has memorized the sounds it makes, so before he presses the button, he will make that sound, and wants to confirm the computer makes the same kind of sound. thank god, i am in usa easy to buy computer and education cd's, its inexpensive here. another thing, don't ever say "no" to anything, just give to them, let them feel the texture of the object they touch. ( i will give you the following examples that i implemented on my son, at age 4th month, he wants to grab my eye glasses, i let him touch and play with it, just made sure he doesnot drop and break it, at age 5th month onwards, he doesnot want to play with glasses anymore, everytime he finds my eye glasses, he calls daddy and gives it back to me, another example most parents want to feed the baby, my son at 13th month can eat by himself with spoon and fork. initally used to make lot of mess while eating, not anymore). sorry, i am not braging about my son, i can go on and on with examples. just enjoy playing with them, listen to their needs, respect them, give them responsibility, when the finish the responsibility, reward them. so here is the secrete "rrr" - respect, responsibility and reward. they work amazingly. good luck to all parents.

Name: Play with kids
Country: Thailand
yes you do have to play with kids but i believe that you teach them the rules of games amd don't lat them play with their self created rules . this is espicially for games like chess that hace a strict set of rules. show them that the needent always win and tell them ways to win . oh yes ans some parents i completely undersrand the geniuosity of your kids.
