Hi Addoil

That's a good guess. Yes, he's born in Dec 2006.

Now trying to find a good preschool for him, still searching... Any recommendation?

Regards

Hi Hifive,
I have 2 boys too. My ds2 is born in Nov 2006. Still not talking well. Still can't sit still. Very adventurous. Don't want me to hold his hands when we are out. Not that he can't understand instructions, but he chooses not to listen (many a times, a bribe/threat and he'll do as I say without further hesitation :roll: ). He is poles apart from his elder bro (P1), who speaks well at a young age, can sit down to do work quietly when young, very UNadventurous, still holds my hand (now) when we go out, and does not buckle/give in under any bribe/threat - sometimes he'll make me feel guilty instead for bribing/threatening him :roll: . But both of them gets along pretty well! :D

Before I forget....Welcome to KSP 8)

Hi Jedamum

Thank you!

My 26 month old son can communicate quite well with us but very very stubborn. He can say 'no, i don't want' to quite a lot of things you wanted him to do. When I want to teach him something, he will take over whatever you have and say 'i teach you'. Wow need a lot of patience handling him as compared to my elder one :pray: .

Still trying to work on my 2 sons, the younger one will always scream when his elder brother touches his toys (when the elder one meant to play with him).

Is your ds2 attending any preschool at the moment?
Need other parents' view / experience. I'm considering to send him to a 3-hr program in a montessori kindy. Still can't decide yet.

halo hifive

My ds also born in Dec2006 ( also same year with jedamum ). I am always thinking that he is 2++ yo, but actually he is consider 3 yo if we are refering to school age :cry: Heard some ppl said that yr end child might be more unfair in the way that their peer already learn a lot of things during the year, and he just came out end of the year--Dec. ha ha.. don't know is true or not. I think it should be depend on the child ability. What do you think?

halo jedamum

my son also not very well in talking. He like to sing baba black sheep, his pronunciation still not very clear, i think slowly they will be improve. :pray:

My ds2's fav few is '不要'(aka 'NO' in mandarin) and "MUMMY WHERE ARE YOU!!" when he can't find me. I have taught him to say "Play with me" if he wants us to play with him, but it ended up sounding like " me" (aka 'accompany' me in mandarin) :roll: ...anyway, it's serves his purpose of asking us to play with him :wink:

.

My ds1 is the one who will get angry when his younger bro touches his toys...he'll not scold his bro..he'll get angry at me instead, cos I am suppose to ensure that his bro doesn't get to his toys when he is not around. Ds1 is pretty good at coaxing ds2 to share his toys - by offering to play with him!

ds2 will be starting his PreN in July (2.5yo, min MCYS requirement for regular PreN). Montessori is not bad if your kid can sit down and do stuff. I tried the montessori parent-child playgroup trial...my boy walked around most of the time and i ended up doing his art work. his fav is the last 10min music and dance time :wink:.

Addoil,
My Nov06 kid looks like 4 yo - he was standing next to a PCF boy (which i assume is in nursery), and appears significantly taller. His only giveaway is his blabbering and childlike nature :wink:
I am ready to accept that year-end babies will lose out academically (especially boys, given their playful nature). So I may not be taking the 'academic' route for my ds2 (due to his nature - although min. requirements must be met to stay in the mainstream). Ds2 has very good motorskills and stamina (which may appear hyper/over active). We are possibly looking at sports/fitness development for him instead :wink:.
