You never hear about this, but you have to talk when it's not necessary so they can learn language and vocab and stuff. For example if I'm washing the dishes for 20 minutes, I have to jibber jabber the whole time because babies don't know what a goddam spoon is or whatever and need to hear english or they won't ever learn it. Washing dishes does not require talking and yet I'm force to so I don't have little Hellen Keller kids. So annoying. Share yours.
