I talk a lot

... and I guess that's not a bad thing when it comes to raising children, or so says a new report featured in Time magazine.

Researchers have found parents, specifically those in professional careers, have more influence on a students' learning than their teachers. I was especially interested in the reaffirming aspect that one doesn't need expensive toys and high-tech gadgets to teach their children; they just need their mouths.

For example, two-way adult-child conversation from an early age apparently not only helps a child communicate, but aids he or she in preparing for kindergarten and making decisions later in life because a parent has allowed the child to realize his or her thoughts matter.

A similar report http://news.uchicago.edu/article/2010/11/09/parents-should-talk-about-math-early-and-often-their-children-report-finds found parents who talk about numbers and spatial surroundings help develop problem-solving skills in ther children long before the first day of school.

On a personal level, my son is already excelling at the greater-than-lesser-than concept and counting higher than any other student in his class. Guess I shouldn't feel bad that talk a lot.
