My 4 year old is talking EXCESSIVLY...She will talk to herself and even talk to herself when others are around. She speaks about herself in 3rd person. It is getting old. She does not stop. The conversations she has are very random, she is very smart...she knows her alphabet, she can count at age level, she passes all the tests at age level. I had some tell me that it is s learning disability and others tell me that she is very high functioning. I am soo confused and TIRED. Is this normal or should I be concerned.Answer Question

My girls all talk a lot. My oldest was the worst when she was little. We used to joke that we knew when she finally fell asleep every night because it was finally quiet! Kids are kids, and they like to talk. I hate that some responses have tried to throw a label on it. I'll be honest, she sounds no different than any of my kids. Btw... my oldest is now in high school, very quiet, and has a 3.85 GPA and is in honors classes. I wouldn't be too quick to slap a label on her and try to quiet her just yet. Wait and see what happens as she gets into school. I like the music idea some people gave (both for her and for you :D). We always have music going, and the older girls have their iPods.
