Whether it’s cake for breakfast or wanting to go to […]

By |May 10th, 2018|

Keep the Conversation Going: Talking With Kids

By |April 25th, 2018|

As parents, we invest a lot of time and attention in our baby’s language development. We sing songs, read board books, make extra effort to point out what things are called and to describe what we are doing throughout our day—even if it’s only folding laundry.
