She does yoga with me (not properly, of course), then we play some games, do a step class routine, and then we do a few sit ups or some crunchies.
On one hand, I am pleased that she is learning the value of exercise, and hoping that she will grow up to be fit and maintain the effort. On the other hand, I am a little concerned that it is perhaps to early for her to be doing these things.
Where do we find the balance between teaching our children good habits and teaching them things too soon? She has also requested that I teach her to read, though she won't start preschool for at least another half a year. I want to ensure she gets whatever advantages I can, but I don't want her to grow up too fast. This has created a difficult balance between pushing her and letting her decide when she is ready.
I feel it is even harder for children now, as it is harder when you are done school, so people often push them more when they are starting. I will let her decide when she is ready to start things, but it is my plan to limit how much she can do, and how hard she will work at anything.
