1. Expanding vocabulary helps children to be confident in communicating
To help your child expand vocabulary and learn how to match words in everyday communication, you can add simple words to them when communicating with them. For example, when you show a duck, you might say, “How does the duck sound?” If your child doesn’t know, you can teach him that “a duck scouts”. The special feature of this method is that you speak and describe will help children feel more excited by you using your hands together and then opening, closing and speaking.
To help your child remember better, you also keep the frequency of repeating about 3-4 times / week, you do not have to worry that your child will be bored because this age children like someone asking something and they will be very excited Encourage when the answer is correct.
2. Give your child options
One rule that helps children form proactive thinking is that instead of asking them to do this, the other lets you choose. This is also a method to help children express their desires. For example, when your baby pointed to a glass of water, you should not say “Drink water” and you always get water for children. Instead, you will instruct your child to express his or her actions by asking, “I want to drink milk or orange juice” after the child expresses his or her wishes then you can meet the child’s request. In addition, you can ask your child a few other things if he or she wants to drink water, ask him “I want to drink warm or cold water” or “I want to drink with a purple or pink cup.” Give children lots of adjectives to stimulate their imagination and develop their language.
3. Create an open and friendly environment in the family
Sometimes at home your baby may not express properly, the pronunciation is not standard, you should not laugh at him because doing so will make your child withdrawn from sharing and dislike to use more words.
If children go home from school often tell stories in class, about friends. At that time, you will concentrate on listening and during the story telling if something you find confusing because your child’s question should be re-asked and guide the child to re-express the intention to speak appropriately. Be patient to guide children little by little this will help children bravely confident in expressing ideas later.
A friendly and friendly family environment will help children always feel safe and want to share more. As children tell these stories, gradually the vocabulary will increase and develop their communication skills.
4. Be a commentator in some activities to help children be confident in communicating
Have you ever seen a soccer game, often if it is tedious without the comments from the MCs. Also, in some daily activities of children such as (bathing, brushing teeth, folding clothes …) you can increase the interest in their work by reporting what they are doing. Of course, you should use very simple words that help children understand.
