Time To Talk to Toddlers

While talking baby talk to toddlers if fun, it is time to give some serious consideration to helping the toddler to learn to talk. Some suggestions to improve toddlers' speech is reading to them and using complete sentences when speaking to them.

Everyone does it when they see a cute a baby. The baby talk comes flowing out of the mouth of adults almost every time a small infant is around. The funny noises make babies laugh and sometimes they make funny noises back. It is a great way to let babies know that they can be comfortable around the adult making the funny noises.
The cute babies soon start to grow up and become cute toddlers. Some people still do baby talk to get the child's attention, especially the parents. Too much baby talk might hinder the child's speech development. It's funny to watch the adults who talk slow or loud to a toddler like they are aliens from another planet. The child may start to copy the same speech patterns, like talking slow. The children understand words loud and clear. However, the adults have to keep in mind that toddlers are not ready to recite the dictionary either. There is a balance to teach children the proper way to talk.
A good way to maintain that balance is to start talking to the toddler in complete sentences. For example, instead telling the child "eat, eat" start saying, "It is time to eat". They will soon start to repeat those sentences back to the parent or adult. Another way to talk in complete sentences is to point out items around the house. Kids that are at the toddler age love to discover new things. Describing colors, shapes and textures is a great way to talk to the child and teach them new things.
The best way to develop a toddler's speech is reading. Reading to a child allows them to hear many words and how to pronounce them correctly. A baby and toddler should be read to at least once a day. As the child gets older around the age of two, will start to pick out their own books. Usually it is the same book they want to hear over and over again. Reading the same book many times may be annoying for the parent but good for the child. Eventually the child will start to repeat back the words in the book as the parent is reading it to them. Many parents complain about not being able to read what they want when the small child is around. It is acceptable if the parent reads what they are reading out loud to the child like the newspaper, for example.
A growing toddler is an exciting time. The parents should not hold them back from developing into a great child. The parents also should not push and overdo the learning at such an early age. Unless something is developmentally wrong with the child, they will learn to talk. Finding a balanceFree Articles, having fun and enjoying the child are the most important things parents can do to help the baby become a toddler.
