Do I have to talk to him?

 
Do I have to talk to him?

For Dr. Rufo “Helping a child wake up to language, as well as the world around him doesn’t require anything complicated, just daily attention and the right attitude.”  Communication should be natural, don’t force yourself to speak to him for hours if you’re tired, but do get into the habit of putting your actions into words.  Explain daily life to him, as you prepare his meals and bath.  Babies love being talked to and just want to communicate!
