I pushed reading and writing like crazy. I have 4 kids, and three of them picked it up with no trouble, but one of them didn't. I tried to keep it light and fun, but sometimes it was just plain work.

I have always made my kids take piano, plus they have to have some form of exercise, though I've mostly let them choose what it was.

My boy that struggled to learn how to read still has a difficult time in school, even though he's incredibly smart. I wonder if there might be some value in pushing him harder. I've always tried to balance pushing him with maintaining our relationship. Sometimes parenting is just hard!
