Children’s Brains are Like Sponges
When you say a word, it enters through your child’s ear their brain hears it and fires a connection for that word.
The stronger your child’s brain connections grow, the easier time they’ll have thinking and talking, and the smarter they’ll become.
When a parent fills their child’s early years with rich talk and interaction, the child gets lots of practice understanding and using words and their vocabulary grows. As their vocabulary grows, so do their abilities to communicate, pay attention, control their behavior, and learn. This practice builds a strong, efficient brain.
Brain development is most rapid in the early years, but it’s never too late to talk and interact with your child.
