Host: What is meant by giving Language to the point? Rene Hackney: When children are very young in 12-24 month old range, often times when they see something they are excited about they'll point and they might grunt if they don t give the words. So, let s say, you are out of the park and child see a puppy dog and they go. Instead of what most parents tend to do, they tend to say, Wow! That s a dog. they jump in and give the label right away, to allow their child to come up with a language on their own. They want parents to either say Look or what s that? giving the pointing Language because hopefully, you want the child to eventually, say Look or what s that? and then parents hesitate for few seconds before they say That s a dog. The hesitation allows the child to think about what that word is and someday, they might actually come with it. When the parent says Look. the child might say Dog. which gives them that opportunity.
