  • it really depends on the child. my oldest was a around one when she first started talking.and around that time started understanding yes and no.verbally. now both my kids know what the word means even my 10 month old. he just cant talk yet.

  • My son was answering yes and no just after a year and by 18 months we had our first "conversation". Lol.
    It went something like this:
    Me-What do you want to eat?
    DS-Yes.
    Me-No, not DO you want to eat, WHAT do you want to eat.
    DS-Chicken.
    Me-You want to eat chicken?
    DS-Yes please.
    Me-Oh...my...god...
