Parenting Tips: Learning to Read

Here is a little story for you about little preschool aged MetaMegan and little MetaMegan's mom on a walk one day.

Little MetaMegan looking at graffiti: Mom, what does that say?
Little MegaMegan's Mom: Oh, that? That says TRUCK.
... pause... pause... pause...
Little MetaMegan: Mommy? That word started with an F. So it must have said, "FRUCK".

delivery people use that word all of the time, 'lets get the fruck out of here'.

I am still laughing at this post, having taught kids to read the same way as little Meta Megan's Mom! Sometimes we just have to throw phonics to the wind.

LOL Once they learn to read you're doomed!
