All children sooner or later learn to talk. To help them learn to speak, no matter the age, we can do the following:

  • Stimulates your baby especially during the moments of greatest attention, for example while you give your chest, or when you play with him, try to make him to look you, to concentrate on your way to move lips to speak, until he try to imitate you and make the same sounds. This is very important, for example, you can make the noise of a motorbike, an animal etc …
  • When you talk to baby always do it pointing out objects that are familiar, will teach him to associate an object with a word.
  • Talk a lot, with a cheerful tone, slowly, articulating the words and using correct terms and phrases. Also remember to always include the article in front of any word, and reduces the use of diminutives even affectionate words. For example, ‘little’.
  • Simplifies the words and phrases, without being too long.
  • After 18 months of the year when the baby start to use more than one word, you can correct mistakes from the first moment, without scolding.
  • Every time he say something good, or is expressed better, we must applaud and encourage their progress.
  • Teach short songs, he will like it because you will have fun singing in the bathroom, car, and help boost his memory and say okay. Try even a song in another language, it will be a good stimulus for his ears. (Children up to 3 years are like sponges, they absorb everything without prejudices and accept everything that is new, if stimulated appropriately, always without stress if a child don’t wants to sing or do what is asked).
  • It is essential that the child lives in an environment that is harmony, serenity and security. Where people communicate and interact with others.
  • Listen with patience what your son telll you. It is wonderful when they are learning to speak and even though they are not understood, having the ‘courage’ to tell a story. Let him finish the whole story without interrupting and devote all your attention (looking at his face) to make him see what ‘really’ you are interested in what he is telling. If you stop, or tell him you do not understand, or get bad, the next time the child want to communicate with you, we’ll think twice.
  • Read with your child often, make him know that can be fun to read but not understand the lyrics, the important is the story and how it represents in a draw.
