Anyone heard of this being done? It seems like it could really advance them quick. Small kids learn shit quick, yo. What's the point of using dumb and even incorrect english that they're sure to pick up when you could not do that and probably make them much smarter? If we didn't treat them like complete idiots they would probably spend a lot less time being ones.

Idk I just thought of this and thought it was interesting.

There have been many studies on this
Tone of voice does a lot to help babies learn exactly what you're saying. This tone of voice is usually considered baby talk, because people usually don't shit-talk babies, hence the overly friendly and ridiculous ups and downs in the pitch of people's voices.
I think it's for the best, to be honest, but to talk in a way that doesn't treat the baby like an idiot. I honestly talk with many different pitches in my voice all the time, so I'd just talk normally to a baby.
I agree however that some people take it too far and thus dumb kid

Agree.

This is me interacting with children.

With toddlers and shit I talk to them normally but with babies a kinda make my voice lighter and softer since it's deep and will probably scare the shit out of them.
#9
I've read that it's fine to talk in baby talk up to a certain point, but then when the switch to looking at mouths instead of eyes, (few months?) then you should talk normally.

Could be wrong though.

My son is 3 next month and I still sometimes use an unnaturally multi-tonal voice when I'm trying to get him to engage with something.
But I've never really dumbed down my vocabulary too much - apart from when teaching him how to speak (by using the simplest name for an object at first encounter). I certainly talk to my partner with standard adult language around him and he's always been really good with words for his age, so I imagine that has helped somewhat.

I talk to my daughter (7 months old) normally and and always have. She's at the age now where she is actually watching your mouth when you talk to her so I figure it's important to show her how it's done.

I do, and the babbies seem to love me for it. I'll ask them questions and interpret their babbling or facial expressions as responses to carry on 'conversation'. It's a bit odd, but I'm the go-to babysitter for relatives with babies because it seems to work.
My signature lacks content. It is, however, blue.

No, I avoid it at all costs because I feel really (and I do mean to a ridiculous extreme) uncomfortable around children.

But it's great to curse at babies because they have no idea what you're saying. As long as you say, "**** you, you little puke machine," in a nice tone of voice, they'll ****ing eat that shit up.
#29
I feel like talking to babies like they're adults sets a bad example because it shows them it's ok to look like an idiot.

I had MTV on and "Teen Mom 2" was on. Yeah, I know...

anyway to the point. The mother was just told she had to move out of her house a few weeks after moving in. This upset her quite a bit. She was in the car driving talking to her friend in the care with her and then on the phone to her dad. Then her daughter says "Mommy are you sad?"
And the mother, while crying, says "No baby, momma's not sad."
So the kids says "Then stop crying."
The mother says "I'm not crying."
The kids says "Then stop crying, then stop crying, stop crying momma."
And the mother says "I'm not cyring baby." As she wipes tears from her eyes.

**** that shit pissed me off. Why are you lying to your toddler? Tell her the truth. She knows you're upset all you're doing is confusing her. Just tell her you're sad and why you're sad but reassure her that it will be okay.

Yeah people often don't know how to talk to kids. You got to talk to them all the time. Teach them shit and DO shit with them.

Quote by Johnny_Ibanez

god I hate these gifs hahaha.

But yeah seriously most kids figure out basic speech and grammar on their own. The ones who don't are unable to do so because of developmental delays. Baby talk isn't bad for babies. It's just like when people change their accent depending on who they're talking to because it makes it easier for everyone to understand.

If you're talking about giving your child an advantage, reading to them and teaching them simple words is the way to go, but it isn't necessary in order for them to acquire language.

However, you retain the right to find it annoying

When my nephew, currently 5, was a baby, I told him he was going to die with a straight dead-pan face and voice.

He started crying.

I just walked away, because you're correct. I had no idea what to do.

this. it teaches them the way the language works and engages them by being expressive

we learn everything through lab-pristine, exaggerated examples, and language is no different

I talk to my nephew (few months old) like I talk to my dog. He doesn't know what on earth I'm saying but he responds very well to facial expressions. If you frown or make a crying face at him, he becomes upset but if you smile right away he lightens up. It's the funniest thing.

I think I'm making my nephew crazy.
