Children learn countless words just by hearing them from parents and other family members, so we shouldn’t cut ourselves off when talking to children even if they still can’t. Do it as if you were talking to an adult, it is not necessary to use a children’s pronunciation to address the little ones, although sometimes we cannot avoid it because of the tenderness that they cause.
Don’t forget that, just as we adults need instruments to cook, children need instruments to learn to think and therefore to speak, and one of the most important tools for your child will undoubtedly be language. The more word meanings he knows, the easier it will be for him or her to think and develop in the world around them. In addition, a Development Assessment Form (แบบ ประเมิน พัฒนาการ which is the term in Thai) is very essential.
Things We Can Do To Promote Language Development In Children
In addition to addressing children with sentences, we can apply a series of guidelines that are very favorable to stimulate language development in children. Take note of all of them and put them into practice.
Visit a square with your child and talk about the things that are there, such as trees, flowers, bees, butterflies, or birds. Observing and understanding your surroundings will encourage you to learn more new things.
Talk to your child about yourself, friends, family, and grandparents, because this way you will be giving them tools to get to know the environment and the environment of their little big world even more.
For a good Early childhood development (พัฒนาการ เด็ก ปฐมวัย which is the term in Thai) use the appropriate words when speaking to them, even if they seem difficult. We would be surprised, surely, at the speed with which a child could begin to understand meanings thanks to the use of a rich and elaborate language by the adult.
Read stories to your child before bed so that, while he sleeps, he can think about what he learned from the story.
