What kids needs from their Mom – Talking

I am reading a book I was given for Christmas last year called “What Mothers Can Do to Make a Lifelong Difference; 52 Things Kids Needs from a Mom”  I want to share one thing weekly on how to make a difference in your kids.

Week 1: Talk to your kids like they are fascinating! 

Our little one is only 20 months old but we have a strong connection to each other with talking. She mostly mumbles and I respond like I know what she is saying. But it gives her the confidence in talking back to me like we are in a conversation. I will need a LOT of help when she can use real words!
