Spend time for your child
You must know that your child will learn
language and speech by means of listening,
responding, playing, watching and working
with others. The very important interaction
for the first few years is between child and
parents, siblings, family members or carers.
You need to spend time with your child; it
will help your child develop its language
skills and speech. If you focus and you
always talk one on one with your child, it will
benefit your child.

you have a spare time, you should guide
your child when he is watching. There are
some television shows that are not suitable
for your child but there are few children
shows that are educational that is suitable
for your child. If parents play with their
children for a long time, their children will
learn a lot of new things. Computer or video
games don’t promote interaction. If your

child will enjoy reading such as fairy tales.

Your child learns by listening or hearing
words and connecting them to different
things. You can add language while your
child is playing. You can also add language
in different circumstances. All you need to
do is comment on everything that your
children do or see. You should use the
proper word that is not hard for your child to
When your child is playing, you should avoid
asking him some questions. For example,
your child is playing a toy car, and you ask
about the toy. Your child will stop playing
and answer your question. Your child will be
stress if you keep asking him questions.
Your child will be able to relax while he plays
if you just comment on what he is doing.
Even if your children don’t need to talk, by
your comments, he will learn language.
