Is my 6 year old full of himself or is this normal? lol

We're sitting at the playground and he's playing with some kids...all I hear him saying it, "I can do this, I can do that, my mom is having another boy, I'm going to be a big brother, me this, I that, my dad this, etc." . Lol.. I an cracking up!! He is always like this too...is he a bit too self absorbed? Or just confident and talkative?

  • He sounds arrogant. I have noticed kids like this, and I don't mean to sound rude, but they usually sound like their parents. Maybe his dad talks like this. It is annoying.

  • Mine is 5 almost 6 and is the same way, not in a rude way like the pp said. Just talking about what he know, things in HIS world. Which at this age is things about themselves and home, school, family and so forth. Plus, mine is an only child so he doesn't really have any one else to talk to or about. IMO it's normal

  • Some kids say everything that happens to pop into their heads. Eventually they absorb why that's not really socially acceptable, but it just means your lad is confident and engaged in his world.

    Arrogant? That's a mental illness brought on by being criticized too much, particularly by strangers.
