"Thirty Million Words" For A Child's Brain
Any parent waiting for a great teacher to come forward for their child is waiting too long.
Parents are the first teachers, educators point out.
And the Thirty Million Words initiative is meant to give parents the tools to help build good brains in their kids, through the frequent and judicious use of language.
The approach is detailed in a new book.
Author/founder/director Dr. Dana Suskind checks in with the principles of the program.
