What's wrong with baby talk?
What is wrong with baby talk? It is so cute! They sound so cute . Then when my eldest started preschool his teacher said no one understood him. The other children made fun of him. What is wrong with a child developing speech at his own rate? The problem is that children need guidance with talking. We are their models. If we imitate baby talk, they speak baby talk. They are cute and little for such a short time and it seems like a shame to get them to speak clearly, more like an older 2-3-4 year old, which they are.
I guess I will have to be a good role model, and say the sounds they should say and sing the songs they sing in preschool. The parents are the best role models and we should set a good example. So I will tape their baby speech , so I can remember it when they are older...
