Play Itsy Bitsy Spider with your child to practice these Parent Skills:
- Use simple, grammatical sentences.
- Use your voice. Let your voice get really low on the word “down”
- Start a conversation. For example, if your child notices the cupcake, that’s your cue to talk about cupcakes.
Remember apps are not going to benefit your child unless you are playing with him/her. To read more about the research showing that solo screen time is not good for kids, see our summary of the American Pediatric Association suggestions on media use.
