When I took the presentation my baby was about to turn 2 years old. He was too young and I believe in unstructured play for as long as possible so I was not very keen on taking the presentation. still the people from ETL insisted that I take the free presentation once. it put me off there and then only. but I agreed.
it was all very nicely presented but i was sure that my kid is way too young to even consider starting all this. infact, in hind sight now I feel I really don't need all those tools to develop intelligence. there are way more cheaper and fun methods to develop kids sensory as well as multiple intelligence. all I need to do is research on some and probably get a few free printable aur better yet, go and explore outside world with my kid.
"padhne ko school ki books kum hongi kya??" ( kids will already be slogging with school prescribed with books)
anyway coming back to presentation, me and husband were fascinated with the idea of Walter and might have considered buying it, but it is super duper expensive. we personally thought the advantages were not even close to the quoted price.
when we refused to take the kit, we were offered some discount and the bargain started who h only put us off further.
later on after the presentation, I was asked to give away 15 of my friends phn numbers with little kids. what a breech of privacy. by the time I realised it I had already given them a few and then when I refused to share more, they insisted me to think harder and come up with more names. by this time I had had it. so I politely asked them to leave and told them I had to go somewhere.
they kept calling me for few more days about offers and job, and then I told them if I myself don't agree with their methods how can I ask others to buy?? still they insisted I attend their free seminar. I mean if u have such a great product in the first place why the hell do u need so much convincing??
so guys beware. do think twice before giving your no for so called free presentation.
PS: I know some parents swear by this programme, but it's just not for us
