How many times have you seen the signs for preschools boasting that their kids are reading? Have you ever asked yourself why that is? What’s so beneficial about that? Is it developmentally appropriate for them to be reading at that age? These are things you need to ask yourself and the schools. Do some research and get opinions from other sources. Really, what Grand Poo Pa out there has the final say in what is right for our children these days?
That being said, an article caught our attention called Preschool Kids Should Not Be Taught To Read by John Rosemond. John Rosemond is a family therapist who believes in traditional parenting. We encourage you to read this article. You can find it here. The article highlights the fact that there is such a disconnect between the research and what schools are promoting.

Every parent should do their own research before buying into what someone else says is right for your child (and who is this someone anyway?) It is important for the next generation of children that both parents and teachers stop and question more of the new theories, rules, and regulations that are being handed down to us.
