Shopping Switcheroo

Baby Toddler At the Store

Try to imagine what your child is seeing when they’re with you at the store. Watch them and describe what you think they may be seeing. When they’re looking at fruit, talk about what it is and how it tastes. Do the same in any store or aisle.

See what your child is learning

When your child sees you watching and hears you talking about their experiences, they’re making new connections in their brain between what they see and the words you use. As you go back and forth, you’re teaching them they’re valued.
