Help Your Kiddo Express Himself Better
Now that your little one is babbling away, it’s time to refine his speech skills. Talk constantly to your child throughout the day. Talk about whatever daily activities you are doing, both in the house and outside. Point out the names of different things and describe different actions and activities.
Keep asking your kid simple questions, like the name of a familiar item or person. Ask his opinion on various things, like how he likes a particular dish you prepared, or which colour shirt he would like to buy while shopping.
Teach your little one to follow simple instructions, like “Please fetch me that spoon” or “Put your ball in the toy box.” Praise him when he succeeds.
Play word guessing games where you give your little one verbal clues like “We wear this on our feet,” and he needs to give you the correct answer (shoes or socks).
