Fun Facts Friday

Talking, reading & chatting with your baby will help build your child's vocabulary, stimulate their imagination, and improve their communication skills. In fact, the more you speak & read to your child even from the youngest age, the better it is for their growth and development. Studies have shown that language skills and even a child's intelligence are directly related to how many words an infant hears each day. In one case study, babies whose parents spoke to them consistanly (an average of 2,100 words an hour) scored higher on standard testing when they reached age 3 than the children whose parents hadn't been as verbal.

Did you know?

By talking and chatting to your baby while taking a walk, while in a store, or even while driving are all valuable opportunities to create verbal interactions. Reading is another fantastic & fun way to add variety to your chat sessions.
