My mom, sister and I are a little concerned about my 3 year old daughter. She will be 4 this summer and I think she might be a little behind as far as her speaking skills go. She can put together sentences, she tries to bargain with me when she wants something, but sometimes I don't understand what she is saying. She has a friend who is 5 months younger than her and she speaks so well!
I am taking her to her doctor next week and I want to address the issue, but my daughter is also very shy. She won't talk to people unless she knows them pretty well so it might be difficult to get her to speak to the doctor.
Please offer me any suggestions for things I can do to help her. She is read to for at least 20 minutes every day, we listen to music and she watches limited tv. Her dad mumbles a lot, and I have to ask him to speak clearly sometimes but I don't think that is the problem.
