I'm asking because I saw in a previous post a little girl that could do this at 18 months and it's got me a little worried because my daughter just turned 3 last week and still can't spell her own name, let alone write it on a piece of paper. She knows how to say it and that's about it. Is that bad? I write it down all the time and spell it out and she'll spell it out WITH me but I know if someone asked her to spell her name she wouldn't be able to.

i highly doubt that at 18 months and if so, only because the parents pushed it. 3 is a good time to start teaching. don't ever compare your kid to someone else's.

My oldest son learned at 4 in preschool- and believe me- it was barely legible!
My younger two each learned at about 2.5. My daughter has a short easy name, whereas my oldest didn't, so that has something to do with it, too.
My youngest son has the same number of letters as the older one- he just does everything earlier- he's only 17 months younger than my daughter and wants to do everything she does!
