    Talking to young children in ways that relate to their everyday lives promotes language development. This is because children learn language best when it is meaningful and relevant to their own experiences. By using words and phrases that are familiar to them and discussing topics that they can easily understand and relate to, children are more likely to engage in conversation, actively listen, and learn new vocabulary and language structures. This approach also helps children make connections between words and their real-life contexts, which enhances their comprehension and communication skills.
