The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends early eye checks. Healthy eyesight is important for learning and development. Studies show that most of what the brain learns comes from the eyes. Your child must have a good vision to have a better learning experience. Here are the details.
Your child’s success in class will need good eyesight. The clear eyes must work well together as well. Good visual skills will help your child write and read. Concentrating will be better with functioning eyes. This will make playing sports and solving math problems easier.
Regular eye exams must start early in life. This is the only way to catch any eye and vision problems that can cause problems for the child. The eye doctor for kids can determine the right treatment for the eye condition. You must bring your child to the eye doctor if you notice any of these issues:
Poor eye-hand coordination
Difficulties in learning
Constant head tilting
Poor reading comprehension
Constant eye rubbing
Closing one eye while reading
Squinting while reading
Decreased concentration or focus
Declining to participate in activities that need good vision
Good vision allows kids to enjoy learning. This helps them become more confident in what they do and say. Positive parenting is caring for your kids and keeping them happy.

Autumn: Oh God, I have so many… I think my favorite was “Mommy, I love you, but we seem to have our differences.” from my 4 year old at bedtime.
Becky: When I told my then 6-year-old son that I was expecting our 3rd child he said, ” You’ve got to be kidding me!!! Do you know how hard it is to raise 3 kids, mom?!” LOL So funny…and man, was he right.
Rhonda: As we were walking through the store, my 4.5 yr old daughter looks at me and asks, “Why do I always have to match my clothes and you don’t?”
Sandi: “Mom, will you please put my poops away?” (He had pooped in the bathtub and set them on the side for me to put in the toilet. 2 years old at the time and so polite!)

Fawn: I was doing dishes one day and my very busy/strong willed 3 year old comes up to me and says…”Mama…. when I open my mouth. I talk.” I had to do everything to keep from just dying laughing!
Dot: I used the phrase that “You kids will be the death of me” (I know, not good) and my little one says, “That’s ok Mommy, we will still grow up.”
Jackie: “Why does it tell you there is a hidden drive? Not much of a secret if they tell you.” LOL Max age 8
