comment How can I increase the numeracy of a toddler?
Just a followup: I model counting objects for my son. If he points at a duck at the park, I tell him, "yes, a duck. Look there are 5 ducks. One duck, two ducks, three ducks, four ducks, five ducks". Stuff like that. I can certainly understand that this is sufficient; he is absorbing the skill at his own pace, and when he's ready he'll show me. I'm just looking for programs that ambitious parents can use to accelerate the process. Card games? Some other kind of counting game? I'm not sure such a game would even work with my active toddler, but I'd like to try.

That's impressive, he can count objects up to 30 at age 3. How did you accomplish it? Did you do something special to teach him? Or is he just a fast learner and picked it up?
