Making Memories

When Monkey was a baby and I first read The Well-Trained Mind, I loved Bauer's suggestion that talking to your child will help them to aquire language faster, and thus to read sooner and more easily. Plus, I like talking to my kids, and it was a great excuese to go through the day telling them what's going on. Turns out that sort of parenting probably also helps them develop their memories, and kids that get talked to a lot - especially about the past - remember earlier and more than other kids. Who'da thunk?
