My son is 2 years and he hasn't said a word. He is healthy, happy, active, and curious (he figured out how to open the fridge etc). And he babbles a lot. There are a few things he says that sounds like words. He'll say nom nom for food and mum mum, and he'll say manumanum and wait for me to respond.When he wants something he'll either point at it or hand it to me. If he's thirsty he will hand me the cup so he can drink.
Since I'm a SAHM I talk and read to him a lot as well as encourage him to talk.
We're pretty isolated in our apartment and rarely go out since my husband works long hours 6 days a week.
But I'm really getting worried.
We only have enough money for bills and food, so I don't think we can get therapy.
And my husband isn't helping either by getting mad. Now he's saying our son is either deaf or retarded. He's a good guy, but lately I wonder what happened to the happy man I married.
I don't know what to do!
