Video: Different cultures: connecting and communicating

0-3 years

This short video shows mums from diverse cultural backgrounds talking about communicating with babies and toddlers. They say they talk a lot, get down on their children’s level, make eye contact and smile. This encourages children to talk, learn and develop. Listen to what your child is saying, repeat things back and help your child with words if you need to.
