I am just looking for a little reassurance. DS is 21 months. He doesn't speak very well. I think he speaks more words than he lets on. At the moment he does this horrible whine noise and points if he wants something or poohs and says 'more'
He hardly communicates besides that.ivf been trying to hold things back to encourage words but he just throws a tantrum. He will throw a 2 minute tantrum to avoid saying 'ta' on fact if you ask him to say a word he won't.
I wa sore pared for tantrums an I admit I am lucky as they don't seem to go for long. I am sturgi g he doesn't listen to reason. I can't say just one more mouthful or pick up your book first then you can have some juice. He just does what he wants and NEVER listens. I I say come here he runs I the opposite direction if I say sit down be stands up
I do feel he understands to a degree as however I don't know how much as sometimes I will say something and he will not even show any sign of acknowledgement.
Tell me is this normal? Will he improve soon. I just see other 2 year olds with better speech and reasoning. Even some kids younger. I just can't see this improving much before he is two.
I have just had a other baby and I'm sure eel deprivation is not helping but I n finding it so hard to be around him like this. I just need some hope on the horizon.
I can't do time outs as he just ignores me - I tap his hand on occasion at rsmt naughty things but he doesn't care. Sometimes if I putt a really serious voice it might take him back a bit if I don't ways want to be growing at him.
