Neil Patrick Harris and his partner David Burtka's kids Gideon and Harper may only be 15-months-old – but that doesn't impact the way the actor talks to them. It's a parenting tip he says he picked up from his own mom and dad.

"My parents always talked to my brother and myself like we were regular people and not babies," Harris tells PEOPLE. "So I don't talk down to them in baby talk. I try to talk to them even though they can't speak the language yet."

As for their personalities, Harris says, "They're thankfully in the new huggy, clingy, head-on-shoulders phase, which is fantastic. It'll brighten up a sad day every single time."
