We all know one or the other kid who struggles to speak confidently, correctly at an appropriate age. While we enjoy the cute ramblings, it can be a matter of great concern for the parents. Sometimes, these are developmental delays and sometimes the kid`s personal choice. While anxiety associated with one`s child`s communication delays is understandable, it is essential to note that each kid has his or her timeline to achieve the milestones. A loving, nurturing environment and the right tools can help children overcome these obstacles to become great communicators.
One can`t undermine to need for effective communication in young kids. From being able to communicate clearly, listen patiently, to respecting others` opinions and exchanging and receiving information is critical to building healthy social relationships. Read on to know some tips you can use to help your child communicate better.
5 Tips to Improve Communication in Young Children
· Respond to non-verbal cues – While your child can`t speak, he can certainly listen. The inflections you bring in your voice bring more meaning to the words you speak in response to their cues. As they grow older, you can bring in games like dumb-charades, lip-reading, picture-storytelling to develop communication and expression.
· Conversing as you go through the day – Just going about your routine talking and sharing with your child what you are doing and naming different objects can help significantly. It will also help to bring some routine and structure in their day.
· Read together – The most quoted advice you will ever hear. But that`s also because there are so many benefits to reading together, from bonding with your child, to vocabulary building, appreciation of stories, enriching their life with stories and values and life skills; there is no end to what you can gain from it.
· Playdates – Organize play dates with your child`s friends to give them more opportunities to practice communication, collaboration, and leadership skills. It will also help them gain some problem solving and critical thinking as they make their way with their friends.
