Quote

Our incidental daily conversations are extremely valuable. Conversation is in short supply in the lives of many children. It has been estimated that, once directives are taken out of the equation, the average parent spends less than five minutes a day talking with a child. Discussion stimulates children to use language to think, remember, reflect, and imagine aloud. This builds connections in the brain. More important, conversation builds relationships. We come to know each other more completely when this is a priority.
