Help Young Kids Become Lifelong Learners
Research shows that what kids learn in their first few years of life—and in their day-to-day conversations with parents—can have lasting effects on their future success and health. Simple things like encouraging early math, reading, and language skills can lead to higher grades, a better chance of staying in school and going to college, fewer teen pregnancies, improved mental health, and even a longer life.
