If you left it up to them, kids would do nothing but play.

But the importance of play is about more than just keeping them out of your hair.

 

We all want to do what’s best for our children. That’s why we take them to the doctor, get them their shots, give them healthy food (when they’ll eat it!), and encourage them to study so that they can do well in school.

But would you be surprised if we told you that play makes for an incredibly important part of childhood? So important in fact, that studies have shown that children who have ample play time actually do better in school.

Read on to find out the top ten reasons why play is so important, and how it can benefit the cognitive development of your child(ren).

Those coos and gurgles are cute, but you can’t always understand them.

When do babies start talking?

 

From the time they’re born (and even before!) we look forward to seeing our babies take on the world. From crawling to walking and babbling to talking, so much happens to babies in the first few years of life!

All babies are different, but there are certain guidelines the CDC puts out so that parents can make sure their babies are on track. One major milestone is when your baby (finally!) starts talking.

Read on to find out when babies start talking, what talking actually means (hint: it’s not words), and what you should do if your baby seems to be behind.
