Many times over the last year or two I get comments from shocked people that are seemingly baffled that Creative Kid knows a certain word and uses it correctly. I don’t strive to teach him words above what he can comprehend, but I also don’t ‘dumb down’ the language I use when talking to him either. If he doesn’t understand a word, I just explain it and go on. But kids are a sponge and can understand and retain way more than we give them credit for, even at young ages. Don’t talk down to your kids, let them rise to the occasion. #PSAfortodayThanks for reading!
