My two children are exactly opposite with so many things. With my daughter, I don't really have to do a lot of tutoring because she love to read, try new things, and do things wit less supervision from me or my husband. Our some on the other hand is very dependent to us. His attention span is very short which can be very frustrating sometimes. He will be starting kindergarten this year so I have been teaching him the basic stuff that he needs in entering the kindergarten level. I did not send my kids to pre-school because I wanted to to be their first teacher at home.
As I have said, my kids are like night and day. The other is very independent and the other one is the opposite. In teaching them at home, I did not really use a curriculum but rather bought a bought that I use as a guide in teaching them. My daughter picked up everything very fast and my son takes a little slow. I am worried that he would have a hard time when he starts school but I am hoping for the best. That being said, I still teach him now even when the school is off because I really do want him to be fully ready when the classes starts next month.
