Want your tinybean to initiate communication more often and stay attentive for longer periods?
Make it a habit to ask them questions when you chat.
Research shows that when we take turns in our conversations and give our kiddos a chance to respond, children are more likely to learn from this back and forth dialogue.
Try not to get discouraged if the “response” is just a grunt or a blank stare for now. This is groundwork!
As your child gets older, questions can help grow their brains, nurture their imagination and boost their vocabulary.
