Babies are watching and listening for their parents. Loving face-to-face time bonds adult with baby. This bond in turn builds strong brain connections for language. So give your baby priority over your cell phone … because when babies form strong and healthy bonds with the important people in their lives, it is easier for them to learn … and to get along with others when they begin school.
