I have a super active, super creative and super rambunctious three year old daughter that was not getting proper learning development. She wasn’t in daycare because of cost and I worked from home 60 hours a week. Needless to say, I was not in a position to help her to learn her ABCs and 123s in the manner that I should have. That is when I turned to educational movies, like Leap Frog.
While I worked, my daughter “went to school”.
This was an incredible arrangement and her learning levels started to improve, but it still wasn’t what I wanted for her.
That’s when a friend introduced me to ABC Mouse.
Alright Dads, let me first start by saying that I have no financial affiliation with ABC Mouse, nor do would I need to, to give an incredible review. I am just astounded by the progress my child has shown, both in the program and in her everyday life.
As stated above, there are six learning leaves for ages 2 – 7. In those these, there are lessons that use books, puzzles, games, songs, art activities, and/or printables for teaching. Now, this is not a “turn it on and walk away” type of program. You will need to help your child through.
What I did was set my daughter up next me during the work day. She completed 3 lessons with me and then got to go play outside or in the playroom for an hour. Then she came back and did 3 more.
This allowed me to break up my working schedule to accommodate her learning schedule. The main reason I wasn’t teaching her before is because I really didn’t know what to do other than sing “ABC” and “123”.
After she did this process for a total of 6 lessons, she got to watch an educational move – Little Eisenstein, Octonauts, Curious George, Leap Frog, etc.
Of course work in nap and such, as well.
In any case, this learning schedule I made helped me connect with my child, helped my child develop her mind and learning skills and help our household become much more smooth running.
I truly believe every child would benefit from using this program. It’s effective, it’s fun and it really does make a tremendous difference. Plus, because of ABC Mouse, my daughter is even more excited to start Pre-K in the fall.
The only issue I had was learning how it all worked. I wish they would have had a more comprehensive step by step for parents.
Because of that, I give ABCMouse.com a 9 out of 10!
