As new parents, you probably would want to give your baby all the comforts, the most expensive toys, and all the fancy things available. However, does your child really need all of that? Some supplies are good to have, but not really necessary. Simple things like love, affection and attention are the most important things your child really needs to thrive and grow. Your care and affection will give your baby a secure base, which will allow him to grow to his/her full potential and explore the world. Here are a few factors that play a major role in the growth and development of a child.
Reading out loud is another way of interacting with your child to stimulate his imagination and improve his language skills. Remember the movie Baby's Day Out (1994). The baby tours to all those places his nanny reads out to him at night. That is exactly what stimulating a baby's imagination means here.
