In brief: Irreplaceable!

Babies and toddlers learn to talk from seeing a face, mouth and facial expressions during talking or reading.
Research shows they do not learn language from watching tv, computer or screen time.. There is no replacement for sitting with your child face to face and telling stories or reading. Toddlers have a higher vocabulary in homes where they have more spoken language and reading interaction.
