Talking to LO

Fascinating article from the Times:

  • Wow what a difference in how much people talk to their children!  I talk to my baby when we're out also.  He has spoken anything real yet but babbles a lot.

  • I have always talked to my kids.  And not because I think it's important, but I feel lonely not talking to them when we are out.
