A little three year old loves the word "why".

"Why are you sweeping the floor?"

"Because it's dirty."


"Because people walk on it with their dirty feet."


It goes on and on until the parents just says, "Because I said so!"

Talking is important. Point out something new as you ride along in the car or take a walk. Teach them the names of things. Teach them about tadpoles and dandelion seeds and what the city workers are doing.

Say, "Give me your LEFT hand or RIGHT foot" when you are dressing them. Teach them to count when they help you set the table. Let them give the clerk the quarter when you buy something.

Ask your child questions to make them think. Answer theirs. Show them God's creation. There's a big world out there and many wonderful things to learn.

Learning is a daily, as-you-live process.

Deuteronomy 6:7 "Thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up."
