The child who does not like to talk with the teacher
or who has some difficulty
in understanding what the teacher is saying
may be a child at risk. . .
If the child's language development
seems to be lagging
it is misplaced sympathy
to do his talking for him.
Instead, put your ear closer,
concentrate more sharply,
smile more rewardingly and
spend more time in genuine conversation
difficult though it is.
To foster children's language development,
create opportunities for them to talk,
and then talk with them (not at them).
