President Obama, Secretary Hillary Clinton, Cindy McCain And Senator Bill Frist Release Video Messages Urging Parents to Talk, Read and Sing to Children to Close Word Gap
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 26, 2014

Bipartisan Effort Builds on Momentum of National Too Small to Fail Initiative to Raise Awareness About Early Learning and Highlight Effective, Every Day Actions That Increase Vocabulary and Improve Social-Emotional Development

In celebration of its one-year-anniversary, and in collaboration with the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy along with other bipartisan leaders, Too Small to Fail shared video messages last night from President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Cindy McCain and Senator Bill Frist. Each video urges parents and caregivers to talk, read and sing to their young children every day in order to build vocabulary and help close the word gap. The videos include personal messages from the bipartisan leaders, and highlight the essential role that parents play in boosting their young children’s brains and vocabulary development with simple every day actions.

“We can be our children's first teachers using everyday moments – singing to them while pushing their stroller or telling them a story while they bathe – to build their brains and expand their vocabularies,” says Secretary Clinton in the video. “The simple truth is this: Talking is teaching. And parents have the power to unlock their babies' imaginations and open their minds so that they can better succeed later in life.”

Talking is teachingとクリントンが語っているように、親が子供に話しかけるだけで、語彙力が増えるという研究があるようです。

The more words kids hear, the more words they learn. Talking about their day, reading books, singing and asking questions help children learn. Talking is Teaching.
