The Power of Baby Talk

The first three years of a child’s life is a critical time for brain development. Within the first three years, a child’s brain grows at a phenomenal rate and absorbs much more than we can even assume. By the age of three a child’s brain is twice as active as an adult (which may explain that short attention span)!

It’s no mystery that having conversations with your child beginning at early infancy is beneficial to their brain development.  From “goo goo and gaga” to your child’s first words, there are many things you can do as a parent to help our children learn how to communicate. Here are three tips for boosting your child’s brain development through language.

  1. Read to your child daily. Introduce new words, books, and bright pictures that catch their attention.
  2. Expose your child to new lullabies and music. Children often respond to music and rhythm before they begin to pick up words. 
  3. Narrate daily activities. Give your child a “play by play” of daily activities, this will allow a child to listen, understand, and make connections. Eventually your child will be telling you what is on the day’s agenda.   

From the moment your child wakes up in the morning to the time they go to bed at night, you should be engaging and conversing with your child. A child has the ability to hear thousands of words a day that will help them learn, understand and communicate as they grow. The more speech your child hears the better opportunity they have to learn and understand language.

The thought of speaking to your infant shouldn’t be a silly one, soon enough your child will be responding too! Keep it up and the results will show!

    Currently it seems like BlogEngine is the best
    blogging platform available right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
