  • This only a guide. There are some children that fast developers.

  • I remember playing family with my friends. Most time I played mother. Cooking, taking care of the home, caring for the baby. Most times, we made fire to cook vegetables gotten from the garden.

  • You are right. Children learn in various ways. Love this.

  • I will do just that. Note taking is important
