This question concerns all parents without exception. Especially when it comes to the first child. My son is growing up. He is 1 year 9 months old. This is my second child. He says a little more, but I understand that everything has its time. Now he speaks with sentences of just two words, but he began actively memorizing and repeating words.
With a smile, I read my diary about my eldest daughter, when she was very young. I enthusiastically describe her first words and imitations, and each time I look forward to: She will soon begin to speak !.
This kind of entry in my diary from about 8-9 months. The daughter from the age of one to two was just a talker. She could approach a complete stranger and, gesticulating, begin to tell him something. True, she talked more on her own. And so to two years …
I know that there are children who already in the year and month of Lukomorye read green oak by heart. But it is only from hearsay. Something in life I have never met such people. Although, according to the parents’ stories, I myself began to speak very early: at the age of 1.5, I was already able to have conversations with me.
We communicate a lot with other children and, it seems to me, more or less the majority of children begin to talk in sentences about two years. And many mothers say that since two years old the child seemed to burst.
It is known that in order for a child to start talking earlier, you need to talk to him. And it should be done from birth with simple words and sentences.
Among my friends moms with whom we communicate on the street, walking with children, there is one person (I can’t say otherwise). She is very passionate about the proper nutrition of her child, but does not think at all about his development. So she admits that in general she hardly speaks to him.
At the same time, they live with their son together and almost do not communicate with relatives. The result is obvious: a boy in his year and seven months, rosy cheeky, plump and smart, does not say anything at all!
Still, I think that good diction is no less important here. I have a friend who was worried that her two-year-old son did not want to either speak or repeat the words. She took him to the doctors, gave him some special medicines. And I drew attention to her speech. She speaks very quickly. Perhaps this is the reason for the child’s unwillingness to repeat words.
By the way, now this boy went to kindergarten and is already in full swing talking.
Since I cannot boast that my children began to speak early, it was always interesting to me what mothers do to children of this kind, who, before the age of two, begin to talk in sentences. I ask and learn nothing new. All the same: they read books, talk to the child, sing songs, tell fairy tales. Apparently, there is no secret here, just everyone has their own time.
Of course, there are serious diseases that are the cause of children’s silence. But in general, child psychologists advise not to worry if the child does not speak until the age of three.
