How You Should Be Speaking To Your Child

How You Should Be Speaking To Your Child
1y to 2y
Speech

Often we as parents think that our 1 or 2 year old kid is still too young to understand what we say if we speak to them like we do to adults, and so we ‘dumb’ down our conversation to what we think is their level. You do not need to do this. Speak to your kid as you normally speak. This will improve and speed up their communication skills. Encourage them to reply properly without using baby words, and correct their pronunciation gently.
