Bagaimana bantu anak membina ayat sempurna

First of all, don't worry. It's perfectly normal for toddlers to struggle with their new language skills. To help your child form his thoughts into sentences, you need to let him know how those sentences should sound. Let's say your son desperately wants you to put on his sock. He walks over to you and says, "Mommy! You sock, my sock, help ..." The most helpful thing is to immediately — with no explanation — model the phrase he is trying to say, like this: "Mommy" (he imitates "Mommy"), "help me please" (he imitates "help me please!").

When you start your model with your name, it signals to your child that he should be saying this to you (otherwise he may think you are asking him for help). Don't actually instruct him to repeat your words; it breaks the flow and turns a helpful phrase into a command, which doesn't go over well with toddlers, as almost every parent knows. Since he's already expressed a desire to put the sentence together, he most likely will imitate you on his own. If not, repeat it one more time, then let it go. Perhaps the next time he'll remember it or be more comfortable trying to imitate it. Stick with the same kind of short, simple phrase every time your child needs your help until he has learned it somewhat automatically.

Once that happens, you can start adding the next part of the phrase: "Mommy, help me with my sock, please." Don't be surprised if he says, "Mommy, help me of a sock," and don't press him to say it perfectly. That was a reasonably good attempt; leave it at that. However, when you respond to that request, really emphasize the missing part: "Okay, I'll help youwith your sock." Prepositions such as "with" are still very new to toddlers, so it is often helpful to use some kind of gesture (two fists together is the official sign for "with") to help him know where to put the word in a sentence. It doesn't matter what the sign is, as long as it's consistent. So when you model the longer sentence, make sure you gesture "with" as you get to that part.

It's also a great sign if he gets frustrated when you don't understand him. That means he notices whether he's getting his meaning across and is very eager to communicate with you.
