Darpan News Desk, 20 Dec, 2017
Hello, Parents!!! UBC has a new study to see how babies from South Asian families learn language! In a one-time visit to UBC your baby can contribute to research and receive a Baby Degree Certificate and an Infant Scientist T-shirt!
The Infant Studies Centre in the Department of Psychology at The University of British Columbia studies how babies learn language as they develop. For their new project they want to see how babies from South Asian language speaking families learn language. The languages they are looking at include Hindi, Urdu, Gujarati, Tamil, and others.
The Centre is inviting parents who speak these languages to visit with their 0-12 month old baby to participate. For each family it is a one-time visit for 30 minutes at UBC. At the end of the study parents receive a free Infant Scientist T-shirt for their baby along with a Baby Degree Certificate from the university!
Money can often be a taboo subject to discuss, but it’s important for parents to take charge and teach their children about personal finance and money management. When it comes to teaching your child about money, where do you start? According to the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC), it is best “to start teaching children about money when they’re young. If you start early, you can build on their knowledge as they grow.”
