When we talk with our children, we’re teaching them how to talk, listen and interact with others. When child is showing you something they’ve done, asking you a question or talking about their day, they are ready to learn. Even if you only have a few minutes at the time, lots of little moments really count.
The more words children encounter when they are young, the better. It helps them build a bigger vocabulary and understand more at school.
Talking with parents, carers, and other family members helps children become more confident. It
also keeps the communication channels open between you and your child. This is
a key part of having a close and supportive relationship as they grow older.
