Talk and Listen to Your Toddlers

Written by Sting (he credits his infant son at the time with the lyrics: "I've never paid him, so that's another possible lawsuit"), "De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da (Is all I want to say to you)" actually might be expressive enough to raise a child's IQ by an average of 14 to 27 percent.

That's according to a recent study published in Pediatrics, the journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

The point that the researchers were making is that toddlers between 18 and 24 months of age who take more turns speaking in a back-and-forth dialogue with adults — even though they may not be using real words — develop higher "expressive vocabulary scores nine to 14 years later." The researchers looked at three age groups: 2 to 17 months; 18 to 24 months; and over 25 months.)

That's pretty impressive research.

So when you're with your child, boy or girl, put down the cellphone and have discussions with your little one, especially during this very powerful developmental stage in his or her life.

Talk with your toddlers and see what they have to say. Just Do, Do, Do.
