50 Ways to Increase your Child's Learning

1   
Talk To Your Child.
Children learn more in the first six years than they will the rest of their lives. Talk to your infant and toddler about what you're doing, where you're going and what you see. Your baby will coo, then babble, but little ones need to hear you speak in words and sentences.

2   
Encourage Questions.
Curiosity is nature's sign of a motivation to learn. To keep interest high, answer
   Encourage Questions
your child's questions and encourage more.
 
3   
Use Big Words.
Don't "talk down" to your child. Keep the fifty-cent words in your vocabulary. Define new words in context and as you go along. Then, listen to your child's vocabulary grow.

4   
Set School Bedtime. Children need plenty of sleep to do their best in school. To determine your child's bedtime, count the number of hours a night the child needs to wake up happily and spontaneously in the morning. Count back from school wake-up time to determine lights-out time.
