It is really importance for children to develop listening skills and your child learning from your good example would be perfect!

 As for listening strategies, there are a number of games that are great to engage your child in listening activities, such as ‘Simon Says’, ‘Mother, May I?’ and ‘Red Light, Green Light’.

A listening walk is a great way to get children to tune into the sounds that we often miss. When you go for a walk, stop for a minute, close your eyes and together, think of the things that you can hear.

The TV can be your best friend or your worst enemy. There are a number of great programs that have been created with education in mind. To use the TV as a tool, it’s important that you watch TV with your child and talk about the things you watch. You should also spend some time as a family with the TV turned off to reduce the auditory distractions in your little one’s environment.
