Have you ever heard a little baby talk? We have all heard how they pronounce the words and sometimes even with great difficulty. A child utters the first words at the age of about one year. At the age of about two years, there are already about 200 words in his vocabulary. These are usually the names of people, animals and objects that are important to them. Because children often shorten words or omit certain sounds, their speech is not easy to understand at first.
But very soon the first words are replaced by new ones, because as soon as children start talking, they quickly invent new words. At the age of 2, the child already begins to connect two or three words together, soon these words turn into a sentence . Very soon those words turn into sentences and the children keep talking and talking. they have so much to say and want to tell their parents about everything. There are many inaccuracies in these first sentences.
Children often make up their own words and follow their own language ‘rules’. However, it is very important that the child’s parents and other caregivers try to understand those first sentences rather than try to correct the mistakes in them. Parents are the first and therefore very important “teachers” of their children’s language, guiding and developing their language. Parents are the first and therefore very important “teachers” of their children’s language, guiding and developing their language. It is a surprising phenomenon when a child starts talking like an adult. One such child is Erin Fitzgerald, who is 1 year old but talks to her father like an adult. It is true that he does not pronounce all the words correctly, but it is the speech of a mature person. The little girl was talking and looking around to understand whether her father understood her or not. If the father reacted positively, he continued at the same pace. The speech with the movements of the fingers of the hands created the impression of the speech of an even greater man. A very interesting and funny conversation helped the child to find words or invent his own. The child should always be allowed to express himself.
