ALL of Us Talk to Our Kids Like This...But Should We?

Do you use a "baby talk" voice when you're talking to babies and little kids? Or do you just talk to them like an adult?

Last month, a Harvard study found that baby talk is pretty much universal. Across all cultures, people all around the world tend to raise the pitch of their voice and talk in a sing-songy way to little kids. Even tribes in Africa do it.

Now a new poll asked over 20,000 Americans if they use baby talk with little kids, and most of us admit we do. Only 22% said they usually talk to kids in the same voice they use with adults. That said, baby talk does have its place . . . and don't you DARE use it on your significant other when you're out in public. 75% of people said it's annoying to hear adults use baby talk on other adults. 

On today's Podcast, we discuss "baby talk" with our kids...and (barf) significant others!
