  • It's normal and it's a stage that she's going through. I'm right there with you and my son will be 5 this month.

  • My son just turned 3, he does that sometimes. When he's repeated something for the 20th time, we play the game, lets see who can be quiet the longest. He's very competative and loves winning games. : )

  • OMG and it is going to get worse...lol atleast til she is 5 yrs. old.

    I have learned to not tell my kids where we are going for that very reason I just keep it to myself and when we go where ever we go they get so surprised and happy. GL
    You might want to start doing this believe me it helps big time.
    But all kids are this way it is normal :)

  • The repeating of things by itself is normal as this is the developmental stage when kids will do this, however if there is another concern like. Does she actually understand what she is repeating I will check into echolalia and talk with the pediatrician about it.
