Toddler Brain

We have 400 dvds player & u need to hook up a keyboard to enter the names of dvd otherwise its just a dvd sign in front of every number. We have arranged dvds in certain way that songs, movies & Mythological dramas are together. We started from 1 & then from 400 to backward. We watched certain dvds often and so many times hubby ask me about a dvd number & before I can answer him A tells him:-) He can’t even count to 100 but he tells hubby 333 is fanaa, 400 is Rani Mukherjee, 353 is Superman & lot more.. :-)

Yesterday he was writing numbers & from number 15 he was saying the dvd’s name of that number then wrote the number & he did for almost 15 dvds. I don’t know if I should feel happy about this or really cut down the tv time;-) But I was just amazed how he remembered all:-)

MO2!! You meant to say 400 DVDs,right? Not 400 DVD players!!I almost fainted darling!:D:D

Kids are like that.They have tremondous memories by association!I learnt that in Child Psychology in college.But then Indian kids are always smarter than other kids naturally.My son is 11 and knows all the inside tricks of a computer!:D

Yes,cut down watching Hindi movies orelse your kids will think we all run around the trees when we are in love!:D:D

400 DVD's?? How big a player is it??

And children remember such things better because it interests them. Their memory is much more sharper than adults.

Tara: I am happy but then I expect him to show same interest in studies too;-)Everytime I ask him if he wants to write numbers or alphabets, he tells me he is tired or his hands hurt.. but he can watch tv or play on computer for 24hrs. without blinking his eyes.

Alan: lol! 400 comes before 1:-) So technically she is even before number 1:-) Its like writing numbers in a circle:-)

TD: You are right.. Its amazing to see them do things but sometimes its scary;-) Every time he does something like this I feel like he is growing up very fast:-(

rohini: I want to but with 2 of them its hard cuz you can punish 1 but not both otherwise I will have one heck of a day with 2 cranky kids;-). Since y’day they are not allowed to touch the computer and its going fine so lets see if I can do with tv too;-)

HTBM: Thanks:-) And I am proud of him:-) he will turn 4 in April:-)

kids are amazing that way. A can recognize any automobile on the street whatever make or model they may be but words, letters, numbers...that is another story..selective intelligence I guess.

Amazing...cut down the TV time...no way!! My nephews and nieces have grown up into fine preteens and teenagers watching a lot of TV.I guess its what they watch that matters. And balance of course. You are doing a heck of a job with 2 toddlers!!

orchid: It is amazing:-)

sm: Thanks:-) Im trying ;-) And yeah,It seems very hard to cut down the tv times cuz it means lots of fight over same toys, lots of yelling & frustration through out the day;-)
