Being a good conversational partner starts at birth. Help your babies grow up to be good conversational partners by considering the following:
- Respond to your child. Look at him when he makes noises. Talk to him. Imitate the sounds he makes.
- Laugh when she does. Imitate the faces she makes.
- Teach your baby to imitate actions, like peek-a-boo, clapping, blowing kisses, and waving bye-bye.
These simple things teach our babies how to take turns, which is what we do when talking and having conversation.
