Cause & Effect

Asher speaks quite well for a kid his age.  He seems to have a pretty good grasp on the English language & how to properly form sentences.  Case in point, today at lunchtime he said, “Daddy, I really am quite hungry.”  He throws out these phrases randomly here & there & it’s quite fun to hear him say them.


One thing he consistently has trouble with though is ‘because’ & ‘why’.  “I ate the whole granola bar, that’s why I was so very hungry,” he’ll say.  Or, “Yes, I coloured on the book, but that’s why I didn’t have any paper to draw on!”


As much as we have tried correcting him on that, it just seems to be a hard concept for him to master.  But, we’ll give it time, he is only 4 after all.
