Kids are wonderfully curious and observant creatures and learn a great deal from their parents especially. So ensuring a positive outlook on communication with one another from a young age will allow both your child and you to feel more connected and comfortable to talk to each other as well as carrying out that good communication into other social situations throughout their life.

Ask the special grown-ups in your child's life, if they can spend some time singing, reading, or talking to bub. Baby's brain is hardwired to listen and take notice of these special voices, which will help grow those valuable early learning literacy skills.

taking the time to create a positive experience between yourself and your little one sets up a pathway in their brains for development - for example singing along together at story time - that creates a moment between you both

Children love to learn, and they learn best from the people they spend the most time around. In order to support and compliment a child's development and learning, parents should aim to create as many positive interactions and experience for their child as possible.
Julie Guteridge, 2021/12/06 16:14
These little brains are learning all the time and you are the best person to provide them with many opportunities to help those brains grow and develop with rhymes, silly songs, drawing, personal storytelling and as they start talking they will have the most amazing stories to tell.
Pamela McGowan, 2021/12/07 13:45
I love the simplicity of this one. I'd make it more inclusive by saying : Kids learn best from the bigger people in their lives. This could include other family and caregivers.
Pam, 2021/12/02 12:28
Kids learn best from Mum and Dad. They love interacting with you, and it's good for their brains.
Cathy Mckenzie, 2021/11/30 15:30
Spending time with your children is the single most important thing that you can do with them. Just have fun with them, sing nonsense with them, play games. Spend time!!!
Karen Postle, 2021/12/01 14:28
Have fun with your little ones. Sing songs while you are in the car driving, snuggle and read a book, you don't have to read the whole book. Try going through the book looking at just the pictures and talking about them..the colours, etc
Peggy, 2021/11/29 15:54
Your little ones learn so much just by being around you and other adults who they see all the time. These everyday interactions help their brains grow.

It is super important to build these connections very early - when parents or guardians interact with their little ones in a loving way, it's especially good for establishing those building blocks with which they will continue to learn and grow.
Lisa Paterson, 2021/11/16 15:14
When our little ones spend time with Mum and Dad, they are developing positive behaviours and encouraging communication.
