Thanx to Lil' Ms Pinky!!

Wow!!! I'm so glad that Lil' Ms Pinky save my day by providing me the link to the answer of my son's question in my post Cold Monday. I never thought my son is kinda advance in his thinking. Hehehe..ya lah 4 years old only mah..and he can question us the parents..why this and why that. I don't remember myself asking my dad about this kind of thing last time. Maybe i stupid a bit lah, thats why never curious on why thing is like this, instead of that!!
So here is the Q&A i copy from yahoo..(the question exactly the same asked by son)..

And this is the answer given by...(do click the pix for better view)

I hope i'm able to use this explanation to make son understand why we use thirteen instead of 'threeteen' and 'fifteen' instead of 'fiveteen'.

Again..Thanx to lil' ms pinky for this info!!

LOL! Good explanation! I think I'm going to print this and if my kids ever ask me this question one day, I'll just shove the paper to them and say 'nah, you pergi baca ini!' LOL!

chegu carol said...

Yup...i have to say that the explanation is quite hard to explain to a 4 years old.

But, if i remember clearly (in class and when dealing with my nephew and niece), if you can explain it in very simple words/sentences, showing confidence in the way you explain it, most kids will agree and stop asking the whys until they get to an age where they can recall back the explanation, found that they actually did not understand it (or part of it)...and start to ask again.

Anyways, that's a good info for us too. I myself didn't know that. Seriously!
