    I agree to butt out, actually.

    LEAVE THEM ALONE. Mind your business. Stop comparing. Instead, Be supportive.
    if mum isnt worried, then neither should you. Do some real research on children's language development if your that worried. That should answer your question.

    She put it in a public forum, so she would be aware that she's gonna get some different opinions.
    Im glad the OP seems to know that her friends child is completely normal.
    It's not as if the OP was like 'OMG my friend's child only has 1 word, how dare she not get help'. She was obviously just curious if it is normal, sometimes parents don't pick up on things that may be an issue and it's nice to know that the Mum has a supportive friend.

    Wow!! That was a bit harsh! I was asking for advice! If that advice is to butt out that is exactly what I will do! That's why I was asking for advice coz I didn't know how to handle it! I didn't know whether it was the right thing to do or not! Thank you to all those people that offered constructive advice and yes I have decided to leave it!

    That's a little bit nasty...the op was just being a caring friend and wanted advice from REAL people with REAL experiences rather than a text book answer.

    Thank you thepouts! That's all I was after! I care about my friend and we are very close and talk about everything! I just wasn't sure whether to be concerned or not! But thanks to some other members, I have been steered in the right direction and things have been clarified for me!
