How to raise your child to be a good talker

2016.06.30

Many parents are worried that their child is not good at talking and may have trouble in the future.
However, as children, there is actually not a big difference between a good talker and a poor talker.
Children who seem to be good talkers usually do not have any special techniques.
In this article we will introduce some tips for raising your child to be a good talker.

It is important that children become good listeners first

In order to improve your child’s talking skills it is important that your child learns how to be a good listener first.
If they are not listening carefully to the person who is talking, they will not know how to respond.
Without good listening skills, children will naturally become poor talkers.

If you think your child may be a poor talker, the first step is to check if he/she is listening to the speaker or not.
If he/she is not listening then it is important to teach him/her how to listen first.

It is important that they are self-confident

Many children who are poor talkers also have low self-confidence.
Some children are able to speak well in front of their family members but have trouble speaking at kindergarten and school in front of their friends and teachers.

In this case, the reason for not being able to speak well is most likely because they lack self-confidence.
Therefore, the first step is to help them gain self-confidence.
If they talk freely they will look like a good talker.
Praising your child whenever possible and showing them that you love them will help them gain self-confidence.

Communicate with them as much as possible

Some children become poor talkers because they are not used to communicating with others.
Children who come from families who don’t communicate much with each other are more likely to be poor talkers.

If you want to help your child improve his/her talking ability it is important that you communicate with them.
It will not work if you limit the communication with each other due a lack of time, please take the time to have a real conversation with them.

Don’t worry about mistakes and let them speak as they wish

Sometimes, children are afraid of making mistakes and feel that they have to talk perfectly.
This causes them to worry about what they say and avoid talking altogether.
To solve this issue, it is a good idea to let the child know that it is OK for them to talk about what they want and how they want.
Please make it a point to ask them how they feel and about what happened during their day and help them feel comfortable about sharing their feelings and ideas.
This will help your child become a good talker on his/her own.

We introduced various ways to help your child improve his/her talking ability.
Let’s try these tips and make sure our children are comfortable speaking and have self-confidence.
