Invite children to recall words they or younger family members may have made up when learning to talk—words they used in place of those they were not yet able to pronounce. Children may enjoy remembering the primary words they used for a sibling's name or a well-loved stuffed animal. Explain that although these words (and the words younger siblings or cousins may have used) sound funny to others, they were useful because they truly had meaning. The person who said them knew what he or she meant, even if others had to decode the meaning or found the words funny.
