hi Sanjukta ! a 3. 5 year old knows all the spellings from Apple to zebra while usually children of this age are still struggling with recognition and phonetics . You are blessed with a super genius child. on the other hand he doesnt talk much which could be a cause of concern. please help him share his thoughts. talk to him on subjects other than studies. take him out everyday to park and let him involve himself in free play. help him be a part of play group with kids of his age . invite his friends home for a play date. ask him everyday how his day was, his choices, his views on various topics. give him opportunities to open up. slow down a bit on studies. let him relax as he might get bored and finally give up after few years. hope this helps!

Hi Sanjukta, when your son comes back from school, share your day with him. Did anything interesting happen at home in his absence? Anything that you feel might get him interested. Once you will talk about your day with him, he will also share his with you and that's how you strike a conversation with him.
