Even Babies Need Acknowledgements

The very same basics that are used with adults to communicate with other adults absolutely apply to babies as well, a fantastic example of such L. Ron Hubbard singles out in a December 1954 talk on communication, where he says: “Kids, kids that come around and they say — I have noticed this with parents. . . . kids will come around and they’ll say,’Jabber-jabber-wog-wog-yag-yem-gillilyogo-wabble.’ And you say, ‘My golly is that so?’ And they will say, … [Read more...]
