Consejos Para Padres ~ Parenting Tips
Participating in group activities is a shared experience between you and your toddler. Shared attention, or engaging in a shared experience is an opportunity to build vocabulary while also teaching the social construct of taking turns. During a group conversation or presentation, we can talk to our child before arriving about taking a turn from talking to be a good listener. You can also introduce vocabulary during this preview session with your child. During the session, sit with your child, whisper gentle reminders. Try to offer a snack to your child before group time to minimize distraction by hunger.
