Earbuds and other headphones that go into the ear can affect children's hearing. Monitor the volume on your child's sound device. Limit your child's listening time to one hour per day.

Get Your Child Talking
Through conversation, your child develops language skills and learns new words. After your child watches a podcast episode, ask him what happened and what parts he liked best.

Make Up a Story
After your child watches the Sesame Street Podcast, ask her to make up a story about what one of the characters might have done next after the segment ended.

Sing a Song
Singing songs is a great way for your child to learn rhythm and language. Ask him if there were any songs in this week's episode, and ask him to sing part of it out loud. If there wasn't a song this week, try creating one using words or themes from the episode.
