we have a family member who's daughter is about to turn 2 & isn't talking. she can make the "lalala" sounds & can say "dye dye" for "bye bye", but that's all she can really say. we've questioned wether she may have a hearing problem or a speech problem & talked about it with other family members who think the same thing. the parents seems completely unconcerned. however, we have a 2 year old who can count & say her abc's & do things a lot of other kids her age aren't doing. i want to speak up for the sake of the child, but we don't want them to think we're just being obnoxious parents & comparing our kids. there's other milestones that their daughter hasn't hit yet & i really wish they would take her for testing.Answer Question

Also, kids develop totally different from others. My step daughter walked at 8 months, but could not talk very well until she was 3. She still has speech problems now & she is 8, although she is VERY smart. She is very active though, the best female sports enthusiast in her school. Maybe you should MYOB, & let the parents deal w/ it. Not all parents want to openly talk about if there child is delayed or not. It would really annoy me off of someone was comparing there child's developments to my child's.

I wouldn't say anything. Chances are they know what's going on with their own child. Maybe there are circumstances you are not aware of. It's like telling a fat person they are fat. Obviously they are already aware of their condition.
