Talk More to Your Children, Improve Their Cognitive Abilities

Parent Interventions

When parents spend more time talking to children it helps in improving the cognitive abilities of children, according to a new research study.

The findings are based on a study of 107 children who interacted with parents or caregivers for 16 hours a day for three days. Audio recorders were placed in the clothes that children wore. It was found that the quantity of adult spoken words had a direct bearing on the cognitive ability of children. It also helps in their language development and vocabulary. Children who had exposure to more adult speech had lesser issues related to restlessness, aggression or disobedience.


The study highlights the importance of parents spending quality time with their children and helping them hear more words from a very young age.
