My son is 4 in March and I don't know if I should be worried yet or not, but he can't really count and he doesn't know anything in the alphabet. I just sat down with him for 45 minutes trying to teach him a little of the alphabet and we can't get past the letter 'A' despite me telling him what it was 5 seconds before. I said, while pointing, a,b,c,d. Then asked him what this letter was. Q he replies. I don't know if he is just not listening and mucking around but it somewhat frustrated me after a while and I stopped. We went onto numbers and I count to five. I have heard him count to ten before but when we sit down and help him with getting a bit better he just mixes everything in the wrong order.
I want to try teach him how to write his name but is there any point? I know I should be patient but I've been trying to help him with these things for well over a year.
He would start prep the year he turns 5 right? I guess I'm just worried that he will be behind everyone and nothing I seem to be doing is helping.
