Babies and toddlers need the benefit of a language rich start in life, a recent study has shown that most brain development occurs in the first 24 months. Engagement and communication is becoming vital with babies from nought to two years old. Such communication makes a big difference for the emotional and learning skills of your baby in later life, to help them lead happy, successful and fulfilled lives. Lots of simple techniques have been developed to encourage even the most reserved parent to chat away with their baby so that they do not feel embarrassed or stupid. Babies love to hear the sound of voice so reading out loud with actions and voices, bring the story alive will help babies and toddlers engage and develop their communication. Link to article
