Thread Name: nursery rhymes-Did You Teach 'Em To Your Kids?
Subject: RE: Did You Teach 'Em To Your Kids?
This is really interesting.My boys were brought up on AA Milne, "When we were very young" and "Now we are six" I always regret that, as a single mum early on, I didn't have the energy to read to them at night, using story tapes instead. Neither of them can spell, and both have problems passing English exams. However, they were exposed to music from an early age, as well as science fiction, so both are musicians in their spare time, with the ability to keep their minds open to new ideas and thoughts. Both are also able to paint and draw to a high standard. Do they know their nursery rhymes? yes, Am I so proud of them I could burst? yes. are they happy, confident young men? Yes. SERIOUSLY proud mum Bron.
