Happy Monday 🥳
Enjoy this beautiful sunshine if you are off today. 💫 I love this photo. It reminds me to sit back and not direct their play. ❗️A common mistake that we tend to make is that we ask lots of QUESTIONS to our little ones when they are trying to enjoy and explore play for themselves.
Can you hear yourself now saying “What’s that?/ Who’s that?, Come on you know this one!” We all want to test our little ones knowledge to see what they have learnt BUT this is not the best way to find out. 💫 Instead of directing lots of questions their way, try to comment on their play. You will find that as your little one starts to develop words they quickly turn into lovely little learning Parrots, copying what we say and do! Try to drop your questions and tell them what they are doing or seeing instead.
