Communication is very essential in our every day living. Without it, we won’t be able to express ourselves, say what we want or what we need. That is the reason why parents had always been opstimistic as to how they could help their little ones learn the ability.
Here are some helpful and effective tips so you can help your baby utter their first few words.
• Talk to your baby as clearly as possible.
It doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to speak to him non-stop. Whenever you are together, just speak freely and clearly. Example, when you are doing a household chore, discribe to him what you are doing. Use simple words and avoid “baby-talking” so he will learn words and remember them in simple clear way.
• Read story books to your child.
The way the words and sentences are put together, as well as the flow of the story will be great way to teach your children of new vocabulary. Choose books that has a lot of colorful and inviting pictures so that your baby could picture out that’s happening as the story goes along. Reading books are fun ways to learn so invest some time to read them to your little ones so it would also help them improve their means of communication even at the very young age.
It is also said that “read and pause” is a great way to help your children talk. If you constantly read stories to him, for sure it is no suprise if he has a favorite one and has already memorized the story. What you can do is that as you read that story book, pause every now and then. It will encourage him to fill in the next few happenings in the story you are reading.
• Be a good listener.
When your little boo starts babbling, listen attentively. Try to understand what are the messages he would want to relay. As he gets older, he will soon start to form clear words. It is important to listen and correct them so they will learn efficiently since giving your attention to them would encourage them to try and speak up even more.
As parents, we always want to be the best teachers to our children too as they go along with learning the necessary abilities they need to go through life. Make it in a way that it will be fun-filled and exciting so your child will never lose interest or get bored of learning new stuffs all along.
