Talking with toddlers helps create connections in the brain. Chatting with them helps them learn to speak. By helping your child learn the names of objects and how to describe what they are experiencing, you are helping them to make sense of the world.

The positive effects of talking with your toddler are long-lasting. One study showed that children who heard more words and had more conversations with their parents, had better language skills and achieved better results at school.
