Verbal development would boost in your toddler as he crosses this stage. At this point, he would try to repeat his own speech. Do not discourage his effort, but try to be a part of it. As a parent, you need to allow your toddler to practice words and sentences in whatever way he can. Try to recite his dialogues or sounds that would keep him motivated to speak further.
What you need to know
You should sit with your child and start conversations. Teach your toddler build words and speak them out. Always maintain a smiling face during such sessions. You can also take the help of a recorder for saving your baby’s voice. Make your child listen to his own voice, which would indeed make him happy.
