Many parents get upset when their child does not speak properly or takes time in communicating clearly. This is not something to worry about till a certain age but you can surely help them so here are few ways to do it.
1. Interact regularly
At the young change, children are quite active and can easily adapt good things so you should always keep talking to them. Initiate the conversation by asking him questions while you are going somewhere or eating lunch together. This way your kid will get more comfortable and start sharing his thoughts with you.
2. Ask him about the whole day
Ask your child about how his day went? What all he did? How was school? What made him happy today? Tell him to describe everything because this is a trick to enhance his both communication and memory skills. To make the conversation more interesting share your routine too.
3. Read and Read
Reading is one of the best ways to make your kid’s vocabulary strong. You should read story books with them and discuss the plots and characters. If you find any new word in it explain them the meaning, no matter how many times they want to read the same book just sit with them and make sure they understand it.
4. Good environment
This is one of the most important factors that have a strong impact on your child’s communication skills. Both family and people surrounded by him should not be loud and violent because it results in a negative effect on children. They develop aggression and also learn bad language so try to speak calmly with them and also be careful with the words you use.
5. Respond to his gestures
Every parent must respond to his baby’s gestures and feelings because this makes them more active and eager to speak. When he looks at you, make an eye contact, when he puts his arms up, hug him, kiss him and try to cuddle him and talk. This will give you immediate responses which are really important for his skills.
