Welcome, this week speech pathologists Tania Kelly and Janice Zee explain how to support the development of your child’s oral language and why it is important. Also, any guesses what the top baby names are for 2020? We’ve got the lowdown!
The role of oral language in raising happy kids
We all want the same thing for our children – to be 'happy'. Happiness is defined by positive psychology researcher Sonja Lyubomirsky as "the experience of joy, contentment, or positive well-being, combined with a sense that one's life is good, meaningful, and worthwhile."

Happy kids have a positive well-being and grow up knowing; they are kind, they are smart, and they are important. So how do we instil these attributes in our children?

The article was written by paediatric speech-language pathologists Tania Kelly and Janice Zee who are the directors of Little Birdie Books. Little Birdie products combine the power or picture books and play to build language and literacy among preschoolers.

Recent trends in baby names
Choosing your baby's name is an exciting part of becoming a parent and it's a big decision, too. A name lasts a lifetime, and with so many contemporary, classic and unique monikers on offer, it can be hard to settle on just one (or three!).

Fortunately, there are plenty of places to look for inspiration. Baby name apps and websites like Nameberry contain squillions of ideas, What To Expect has rounded up the best baby name books, and you can find inspiration in your family tree, friend circle and favourite things.

McCrindle's Baby Names 2020 report is also a great place to see what's on trend. Each year, this social research agency crunches the numbers to find Australia’s most popular baby names, so let's see what patterns have emerged with parents.
