Children who cannot communicate

Today's parent are spending less time talking to their children at mealtimes or reading them at bedtime than parenst of previous generations did. " Children are starting primary school with a speaking age of just 18 months and the number unable to form simple sentences is rising," reports The Times of London. In Britain, 18 per cent of children aged 5 (more than 100,000) fail to meet the expected level of speech for their age. Hence, many children who can not understand basic instructions or express their needs are like foreigners in the classroom, not able to understand what is going on.

So parents should sit and think about how we can help our children to better future. Always communicate to our children as much as we can and in anyway we can!
