I have learned the hard way, that when a three year old has an obsession with something, it is much easier to go with it, than fight against it!
Besides, kid’s learn best when they are doing something they are interested in, so following your child’s lead is one of the best ways for them to learn.
It doesn’t hurt, that going along with an obsession… ahem.. I mean an interest… also means that my boy is more likely to concentrate on an activity for longer, and go back to it again and again. That means I spend more time getting work done, and spend less time helping him find something to do.
I reminded myself of all those things yesterday as Noah stamped his foot and yelled “It has to be robots! I want to do robots… new robots!”
He’d played with the magnet robots we made for a while, but we’ve lost a few pieces and he was getting frustrated… so I decided to work with his interest in robots, and his love of drawing, and combine the two. I made some simple, robot drawing prompts, and just like that, our morning was filled with robots.

Of course one child’s obsession is often caught my the next one, so the afternoon was filled with robots too!
