    Default Normal Two Year Old Boy Behaviour?

    My 2y SS repeats himself a lot. He'll sit there after saying something and repeat it over and over again and his communication always seems to be in the tone of a question, that is the last part of the sentence is raised in inflection/ tone. Eg. I'll ask him to sit down and he will sit but then repeat himself " I sit down? I sit down?" Over and over again. Or I'll change his nappy and he will wander around the house after say " I have a clean bum? I have a clean bum?" Over and over again. He also does it during play where he will be playing with a toy/ reading a book and he will repeat over and over " I read book/ I play toy?" When we "answer him" yes, you sit sit down/ have a clean bum/ play toy etc it doesn't stop him from repeating himself. I usually have to say a few time to stop before he will, which I'm thinking probably ain't the right thing to do in retrospect. Is this normal? When should I be worried? Does anyone else have this? TIA

    My daughter was and still is a little like this. I found she started it when she started full time daycare and it was almost like she was competing for attention from caregivers and needing to repeat herself. In the end it almost became a habit.

    Has your child had/passed their hearing checks.

    He's not had hearing tests apart from when he was born. I was about to say I thought it may be a boy thing because my daughter was never like this. He doesn't go to daycare but my daughter did from a young age so I'm not sure for him that it is vying for attention. Though can see how it might be. I must say I am finding boys more challenging than girls, they are babies for so much longer it seems. Thanks so much for the input so far.
