Dr. Cornelia Franz
Specializes in Pediatrics
Educational toys: Use toys that are safe and that stimulate the mind and the body. Children respond best to quality time with parents doing simple things. Reading to them, crawling with them, inventing games to play with boxes, etc. Toys can be additional help and should not replace one on one time. Puzzles for right age can be good. Legos can be good for the right age, etc.
