How smart is your baby??

Suddenly kadusmama went crazy blogging in the middle of the night! hahaha..I'm supposed to be on bed right now, but I cannot resist myself from sharing this amazing clip from YouTube. Do watch it until finish and give a comment later on.

So???? What do you think?? Amazing???Yep..I think so too. It is so obvious Baby Felicity is one amazing and gifted baby. How many 12.5 months baby you know can read words like laugh, daddy, mommy and can even recognise a chinese letters?? So far I've met none. My daughter who is 19 months old now do knows the letters A, B, C but she hasn't reach the stage of reading words shown to her. Hehe I'm not saying she is not a smart baby but do you think it is easy feat for a baby to be able to read in such a tender age?? I'm curious to know what is the teaching method Felicity's parents used to teach their baby reading in such an early age. Yeah..I still cannot get over my amazement of seeing a little cute baby who can read and pointing her body part based on the words shown to her..It is totally brilliant. If only I can learn the teaching method and start to use it on my daughter?

What makes me thinking right now, if Felicity able to read at the age of 12.5 months old, is she going to do a calculus at the age of 5? Hehe..It is possible, right? Lets hope we will see Felicity in action again one day and make her one of the smartest baby ever. If you think you like what you've seen in this video, YOU CAN WRITE ABOUT THIS VIDEO TOO!

Hi kdmama, I know what method they are using to teach the baby. I have the book if you are keen to do it with your kids.. hehheehe.. I know that method since I my eldest was a toddler.. was very excited about it but then thinking of the time to do the words, and time to teach her the words..tidak jadi hehehe. Instead I read stories to my eldest since she was a toddler and teach her the phonic method when she was 3 yrs old ( I think) and by the time she was around 4, she knows how to read already.. that's b4 she went to preschool. Even her teacher tekejut coz she knows how to read and ask me which school she went b4 hehehe. IMO, I dont really like the doman method bcoz it teaches the child to recognise only the words that she has been taught or she is familiar, but not the new words.. I like the phonic because the child learn to reach by phonetic sounds of the alphabet and thus can learn to read any words, books by herself afterwards. My eldest can read in English and Malay although I taught her the phonic in english only. But every parents ada their own preference kan.. hehehehe.
abislah iklan ko sia komen, hahaha. but this is IMO saja k.

I used to sing for my son when he was very small..by the age of 10 months, he can sing already..selalu kena kasi tingu Mother Goose kan..hehe but reading tidak pulak dia pandai..hahahaa! He knows how to read ABC masa umur 16 months giu..but thats it..tidak pulak sia ajar sampai pandai membaca.. :) now dia sudah 4 tahun, ok lah juga, pandai sudah sikit..but my daughter nie..adeh, susah sikit mau ajar..dia nda mau sit still..but what i knows, mau ajar budak nie, the key is repetition..betul kah?

Wow, that is amazing indeed. I mean you blogging so late .... hahaha ... just kidding.

It is really amazing that she can read at that age. I think when I was at that age, all I cared about was to sleep ... LOL! But a child's mind at that age is like a sponge I suppose ...

i am quite afraid to teach sona too soon..araid when the time she goes to school she won't be interested so go back to ABC an all the beginner stuff...a friend of mine got a phone call from his son's teacher telling him that the son does not want to do anything at school..reason said he knows everything already..how la???

nick phillips ~ It is amazing i was blogging in the middle of the nite! hahaha..i was half ded trying to open my eyes.
When i was that age, i think I'm still struggling on how to walk or to talk..

deana e ~ i think you can teach sona the basic ABC or 123, or better teach her to sing.
Probably it's true if a kid already know all the learning stuff, it will dampen his spirit to learn at school since he already knew everything..

not my eldest, she loves to go to school because she can play with friends... I remembered the teacher told me.. she gave my daughter thicker books compared the classmates, but everybody also want to read thick book.. in the end.. my daughter read for the friends. The good thing about she knows how to read early is.. easier for her to do her homework... all I stress is "always read the instruction b4 answering the question". One day the teacher mentioned to me yg ada tis one time, everybody coloured the picture in the homework except my daughter, so teacher asked why.. my daughter said " it's not mentioned in the instruction.." the teacher also terdiam hehehe.
My daughter ni berani sikit.. klu dia tanya the teacher say "don't know" she will say " why you don't know, you are a teacher, you're supposed to know the answer".. The teacher said.." kalau ada 10 "R" in my class, mati lah sia.." hahahaha
