Interpret Your Child's Speech

Try not to speak for your child when she, a new talker, first attempts to communicate with others. That said, it can boost her confidence if you step in now and then just to translate her baby babble that you, as her parent, are able to understand, even if it sounds like an alien language to the average listener. Knowing she is understood is essential to building her confidence as she develops her speech skills.
