Now absolute false is a bit harsh to say in my opinion.
Because you have the experience of 1 kid, I could swing it right back at you because I have 2 children, ergo according to your own logic, I am more
right than you.
So you are saying you have a kid that is 1 year and 9 mths (vs my youngest that is 2 year and 4 mths)
And you are saying that your 1½ year old toddler can count to 10 in Spanish (I assume it is a foreign language to her?) Name the alphabet, identify
colors (how many are we speaking, I assume all the base colors?) And count and identify numbers 1-14!
Thats a wonder child, you should get specialists to document this, really I am impressed!
My son who is 7 mths older than your daughter, cannot count in a foreign language, he can count to 2. Does not know the ABC, he can identify most
basic colors like, red, blue, green, grey, white, black, yellow! And have a vocabulary of around 1000 words (incl, similar words but with different
grammar) and form sentences of 2-3 words!
And the funny part is that he is age appropriate, and we just had a talk with his pedagogue (its a bachelor in kids basically) and they confirmed
this. I know we are behind in PITA etc in Denmark because we try (or at least tried, we are seeing a growing trend over here to live up to
international standards, which I personally believe is wrong) to let the kids evolve in their own natural pace.
But really that must be a wonder kid, at least according to danish standards. Congrats.
More kids should obviously watch Nickelodeon, they turn toddlers into geniuses :p
