I noticed a thread the other day about how high can a 4 year old count. I read throught the post and decided not to post myself because in all honesty i was a bit embarrassed. DS can barely make it up to 10. He recognises his number and letters though he just doesn't know the order. Sometimes I think its a bit of lazyness from us and him but others i truely wonder if he might be having trouble. He knows his shapes and things to look at them but to draw them they look nothing like the shapes (except for circles). He's not even close to writing, he doesn't like to draw, paint, anything like that. I'm just worried that I'm failing my boy and I don't want to do that.
So are there other 4 year olds that didn't know their alphabet and couldn't count real high that went on to be up there with the other kids? Am I just stressing too much or should I get some help with him?
