Help your child talk: Talk about what you are doing

You are busy.   You don’t have time to work on language.  Well, at least you think that you don’t.    But all that you need to do is talk!

To help your child, talk out loud about what you are doing.  While washing the dishes, talk about the dirty cups, soap, washing, etc.  While doing the laundry, talk about putting the items in and out of the washer, folding, the warm or wet clothes, and smells of the detergent and fabric softener.  Hate making the bed, talk about your feelings and why you complete the chore anyway.

Your child will learn valuable language by listening.  Hopefully soon, they can pitch in with the chores, too!
