I feel like such a c**p parent. I think my little boy is perfect, and I work so hard to try to get his speech up to the standards of what he should be speaking. And it's not like we don't work at it; it is CONSTANT work. Constant hard work. ANd sometimes I feel like I'm not doing enough, even though some parents next to me work so much less at their child's speech, and there they are babbling away.
My son has speech delay, and he's nearly 3, and I just feel like as much as I try to give him the best, I just can't make him be like he is supposed to for his age group.
He is a loving boy, he is very caring, social and active; and I think even he realises that other kids around him can speak, but as hard as he tries, he just can't get the words out.
And I hate it if people make comments like, oh you should try harder, or don't you spend time learning with him or something?
I feel like I failed him in some way.
