Q: My daughter is 42 months old. Below are my questions:

  1. She is able to name objects but was unable to read from words. How can I help to make her to recognize words?

  2. Is it appropriate to teach her phonics or send her for phonics lessons at this age?

  3. I've send her to " Shichida Methods" school.

  4. Her attention span is short and is easily distracted by the surroundings.

  5. How can I make her have more concentration and longer attention span?

  6. When reading stories to my daughter do I need to point at the words and read out to her or just by reading the story aloud?
