comment When should I teach my toddler the ABCs?
@A.I.Breveleri I stopped at W, since I have read X for X-mas tree (there aren't any Christians around so can't get to see any christmas tree), Y for Yak (haven't seen any such this in my daily life), Z for Zebra (haven't seen any such this in my daily life). Where I live, word "chain" is used for zipper, and I don't know what is a yardstick.

She is 32 months old and measures 35 cms, and according to you she will be 3 feet 5 inches at 4.5 years of age? Have I understood it correctly?

Thanks for the detailed answer. This is the first time I have measured her height. What should I do now?

comment What are the activities pertaining to decorating the house with hand made objects where I can get the toddler involved?
but the damage that can be done with a needle isn't permanent. Needle can get into the eye if the child sneezes while holding the needle. You haven't answered the question, BTW. :)

@Stephie thanks, that was encouraging. Though I am confident about her too, but I was afraid to take the decision alone. I think I should give her very big needle -just to be safe?

comment What should we do about a 8yo child who will suffer silently until a breaking point?
I am 32 and I still behave the way you described. It is hard to get rid of this habit.

comment How/Should I deal with the playschool teacher who makes the toddler colour by holding her hand?
@Stephie And kudos for being such an attentive parent. Thanks to this site. Before I met this site I was like any other Indian who would merely compromise with the situation or do what elders say because elders are always correct (:rolleyes:)!

@LaurentS. Happy to know that. Touch wood. This child has an astonishing attention span when it comes to story reading - from me.

@Stephie Did you notice that not even you managed to colour within the lines? Wow, Yesterday I did think that somewhat would point out that bit. I should have mentioned this in the post itself that I have "delibrately" been careless because I was colouring with the "child".

@Erik colour should be within the lines, that is the reason. I didn't know it has anything to do with fine motor skills.

comment How to encourage a 2 year old toddler to complete colouring a sketch?
@rrauenza Does reading the story normally engage her enough? No. It is not surprising. Many words and sentences in the book are not in the vocabulary of the child.

comment How to encourage a 2 year old toddler to complete colouring a sketch?
@Raphael I read only english story books to her as my aim is to teach her English. The reason I am bored and tired is that I do not read the words of the book. I use my own words to describe the story depicted by the picture in the book. This requires me to make sounds of animals and various weird expressions which consume a lot of energy. I have to eventually think how should I twist or speak the story such that a 2 year old child can understand. If it were all about simply reading from the book, I wouldn't have been bored at all.

@Raphael I can't. The country is india. Here reading books to a 2 year old is a foreign concept. Very few books are available for a 2 year old kid. She has already 30 books which I have read to her n number of times where n > 15. Amazon.in has imported books which are very expensive here.
