Re: Poll: First Children - TV and Speech
My DD was VERY verbal and watched no TV. We did do signing with her (just me signing, not the videos) and also read books. LOTS of books. I mean we read, and read, and read and read. I've never seen a kid who loved books so much. I think her advanced verbal skills were due to me reading to her all the time, talking to her about everything (there's no one else to talk to when it is just you and the baby! Gotta keep sane somehow, LOL!) and signing.
My DS was no where near as verbal. We still did no TV and but he was not as interested in books at all. We did sign with him which did help immensely with his ability to communicate, though.
