Be Your Child’s First Teacher

Don’t wait for pre-school to begin your child’s education: You should be your kids’ first teacher. You don’t need Baby Einstein or an iPhone app to do this either. Teach them about colors, numbers, letters, the moon and stars, etc. Also go old school with Legos, tinker toys, blocks and puzzles too to build their brains.
