What is most powerful tool your child needs for her successful development?It is language, of course Or, let us be more specific and say ‘words’ it is words that let us think, create ideas, and reason. How many words one has at one’s commands decides the level of one’s reasoning. A rich vocabulary leads to high levels of reasoning and creativity, and skill in communication.
It is never too early for a child to start picking up languages skills. The basic s of language are acquired largely through meaningful interaction between the child and adults. Keep talking to her and take time to tell her stories, and recite rhymes.
Tell her what is going on when something is happening. When you observe something of interest-whether it’s a dog , a flower, or a butterfly-talk to your child about what you see. The more you link ideas together, the more your child will learn.
Reading out stories is another fruitful way to develop language skills. Another tip would be to talk about what you are doing. “I am going to make breakfast now. What shall we have today?” “ Come on; watch me scrape some carrots for dinner!” such conversations can be very effective, because the child can actually associate words with seeing their meanings in action.
Don’t make a fuss if your child makes mistakes while she talks. It is not a sin, after all, if a little one says, “I goed to temple today! ”you could correct her indirectly by saying, “oh you WENT to the temple? Very good!”
Nursery rhymes, action songs, word games etc. are all effective tools to develop a child’s language skills. Let your child’s speak her way to success!
