    the early rears are the most in the child’s life

    If the child does not receive high quality teaching during these rears, as they are the most in the child’s life, the child may find itself leaving badly punctuated and nonsensical comments on websites when it becomes an adult.

    Hahaha! ‘Other’, you have made my day.

    But ‘Other’, some people may not have been educated and may not have been given the opportunity to receive a great education, failing that, they may speak English as an additional language. We must not prejudge and we must not ‘bully’ other people You are not teaching or delivering fairness and equality by singling somebody out because of their ‘badly punctuated’ comment. The comment Nida was purely making was that Early Years are so important. And so is being kind and respectful to one another.
