Little ones love to talk, including those who don’t know many words. Talking helps them develop communication skills other than having fun. Here are 6 ideas on how to talk to babies:

Remind them of the day again.

For babies, every day is an adventure. Buying an apple, washing the car, or picking up items left for dry cleaning can be excuses to talk. Every night before going to bed, talk about the events of the day. If your child is still having one- or two-word conversations, you can learn the details with very specific questions. Let’s say your child tells you that they’re on the playground. Get more details with questions like: Who took you there? Who did you play with? Which toy did you like the most? Ask your questions in a way that causes you to give more detailed answers than yes or no. Reviewing the events of the day can be particularly helpful to parents of children in day care, as it helps you keep track of your child’s activities.

Read with a pause for the duration of the story.

After reading Good Night Bear for the hundredth time, don’t be too surprised to learn that your child has memorized this story. It is a way in which he can demonstrate his skills to put his ever-evolving verbal skills into practice. Start reading one of his favorite stories and let him fill in the blanks without reading a few places from time to time. Or ask her to repeat some chapters after reading them. Each time you read the book, stand at a different point in the story so that you can work on the pronunciation of new words.

Play word games.

The conversation is extremely engaging when it turns into a game. Small babies ask, “What is this?” He will enjoy a game called. When you are in a new environment, it can be a cafe, airport or market, you can show something and ask “What is this?” . Help your child find the right name. Start with a few simple objects to avoid pushing him too hard – it could be a cat or a snack, make sure he knows that object. Then try to make them say a new word every time. If he doesn’t know, whisper the answer and let him say it. Then tell him what the object is and how it works. For example: “This is an umbrella, we use an umbrella to avoid getting wet in the rain.”
Toddlers ask, “What Happens Next?” They will be pleased with a slightly more complex game called. Start telling your child a story, and as you begin to delve deeper into the story, let him or her guide it. I asked him, “Did the dog come?” or “Who did he go to?” help him/her complete the story by asking questions such as.

Have them chat on the phone

Most children begin to have a fascination with phones long before they can speak. Use this temptation to chat. Call and hold the phone open to say hello to friends and family. He will be motivated by outside help without any visual clues. Ask the caller to ask simple questions. If he can’t answer them, comfort him with some questions of your own. For example, “Can you tell Grandma what you had for lunch today?” Or “What toy did you play with in the sandbox this morning?”

Involve him in the discussions.

Don’t underestimate your little one, you can be sure she’s heard everything that’s going on at home. Try to include him/her in the conversations, ask him/her for his/her opinion. For example, if you and your partner are trying to decide what color you should paint the bathroom, ask your child about problems with it. “What color do you think we should paint the bathroom?” Even if you decide to do something different than he or she says, you can still ask your child for ideas.

Record it on video.

Most children like to be seen on camera. Turn on the camera, shout “record,” and see how your child reacts. Some children need no encouragement at all and take immediate action. Others may need a little more encouragement. Ask your child to sing their favorite song. Ask a series of questions, pretend you’re being interviewed. Play the video right away to get him interested. After seeing and hearing himself/herself, he/she will be more excited to deliver a higher performance.
