Many mummies in the yard complain that their children say little or nothing. Although they are already 2 years old! My daughter and I have another problem – she talks too much, sometimes tiring others. What do you do to make your daughter learn to speak so well at 2? – Moms ask constantly. – Probably, follow any special techniques ?. To which I usually smile and say that it is hereditary. At one time, my grandmother aptly called this retention – dictionary diarrhea.
To begin with, I am generally opposed to any kind of early development. I think everything has its time. Nature, unequivocally, is wiser than man with his eternal striving for perfection. Therefore, I do not follow any special techniques. I do what my intuition tells me. Here I believe in it.
In the tummy
Our communication with our daughter began in the period of pregnancy. I woke up, stroked my tummy and wished Masika good morning. During the day I tried to describe in words everything that happened to me. And good, and not very. Naturally, I could not always express my thoughts out loud (otherwise people would take me for crazy!), So sometimes I talked to my daughter mentally.
In addition, I often listened to classical and instrumental music. And also music for relaxation, as she practiced yoga for pregnant women for up to 7 months. Went to the exhibition. Read books. I admired nature. And even she drew! And, of course, she told about all her emotions to the baby in her tummy.
And I occasionally read nursery rhymes out loud or listened to them on the disc. And what is interesting: from the classics I usually preferred Vivaldi, and from the poems – to Agnia Barto, and my daughter loves them most since her birth. So, all the same it is true that babies hear everything in the tummy.
After the birth of my daughter, I, unlike other mummies I knew, immediately began to talk with my daughter. I just felt so comfortable: I really like to chat, and being alone for one whole day with a child and not being able to speak out is torture for me.
If I ate and my daughter was awake, I would sit opposite her, show and tell me what I eat and why. If we walked, then I threw back the hood and described everything that we passed by. When we went to the post to burp, we looked out the window or admired the pictures on the wall. You can transfer to infinity, the main thing – my mouth almost did not close.
I rather early (if my memory serves me since the month) began to read to my daughter poems and songs, sing songs or put them on a disk. Naturally, little by little: 3-5 minutes. And when she put her daughter to bed, she tried to sing different lullabies.
After a year
By age, I tried to talk to my daughter with simple sentences. For example: A butterfly is flying. The boy is crying. Baba and grandfather came. After – when the daughter herself began to try to speak her own language – I began to use complex sentences, introductory words, different suffixes.
And yet: I never lisped with her, always spoke in a normal human language. Or rather, in the correct Russian language. No wonder I have the first higher education – philology.
After a year we made the book repertoire more complicated: fairytales about buns and ryadas joined the rhymes and rashes. And so – ascending.
By the way, up to 2 years, the daughter spoke very few words – much less than the speech therapy norm. Although her passive dictionary was very rich. At the same time, the daughter immediately began to speak words entirely, and not in syllables, like most children. For example, a woman, not a ba.
I don’t know, maybe it’s not right, but I didn’t follow the recommendations of a speech therapist, but just talked and talked to my daughter. And at exactly 2 years old my daughter started talking, so much so that her mouth simply does not close.
Three years old
Recently, my daughter turned 3 years old. She can easily express any thought. At the same time he speaks with complex sentences and correctly uses the introductory words (first, second, apparently; it seems to me), declines and conjugates. Answers any question from a child or adult. And she torments everyone with her favorite question. Why ?, instead of Why ?. And jokingly he calls himself why, instead of why. From the books most likes to read about Pinocchio and the Frog Princess. Sometimes he even asks you to read the Snow Queen of Andersen.
According to mummies from a playground, my daughter speaks better than all her one-year friends.
Dear Mom, do not torment the child with early development. Think about it: if it is advertised so hard, it means that someone needs it. But definitely not your baby. This is what I’m talking about as an advertising and PR specialist. Listen to your intuition. Watch your baby. You alone know what your children need for a full and comprehensive development. And let the communication with the child brings you only one positive.
