I try to talk to and treat children more like adults. It’s a good way of getting them to like you, especially teenagers who crave that sort of recognition. Turns out even infants are smart enough to recognize that baby talk is just you being retarded. Their language development benefits more from sincere, advanced conversations, even if they’re just listening in. So the Wiggles (even with their background in developmental psych and early education) are doing it wrong.
