Talk, Talk, Talk


I completely agree that language difficulties can begin at home. It does not matter the socioeconomic background, all you have to do is talk to your kids. The more parents show their interest and concern for talking with their children, the better off they will be. I have noticed that kids who attend daycare have much more advanced language than those who are at home alone with a parent. Not to say staying at home with your child is a bad thing, I just feel that there is only so much interaction a parent can have with their child. There is something to be said about a child working with and interacting with other children. It teaches them to use their language and talk things through with their peers.
