Two crucial guidelines include:
- Try to start conversations with the child as early as you can
- As “cute” as it is, avoid baby talk.

Each child’s speech development is different. One child may speak earlier than the other and they are both healthy. Now, does screentime cause speech delay? There are studies seeing the connection, but it’s still tricky to establish a direct correlation. It’s still best to limit a child’s screen time while increasing its quality. Of course, don’t forget that supervision is crucial. Share screentime with children so that communication will still be present.
