  • I think everybody is guilty of it. I know I sure am. My son is 4 and has a quite laid back personality. When he's in karate and all the 5,6, and 7 yr olds are running around like wild animals he'll sit quiet. Then there are times when we'll run into a 4 year old who talks like a 6 yr old and I'll be like, wow how come my ds doesn't talk like that?

  • We have a friend that still puts his 4 yr old son in a high chair to eat, babies him constantly and you can tell he's so far behind. He's still in pullups etc. It's so sad. He see's our 3 and they are where they should be, but I don't say anything because I don't feel it's my place, and I really don't know how to approach it.

  • Not really, I know that all kids develop at different schedules.
