  • My son spoke "on time" but I do know the Ped. said childen consentrate on one thing at a time. So, if your child is trying to do "physical" milestones like crawl, pull up and walk then the verbal skills may be on the back burner sort of speak.

  • I don't think that is true. Every child is different. My boys talked very early. My 2 year old speaks very well and in full sentences. My niece who is 6 weeks older than him only has a handful of words and still mainly points and grunts. Also working in daycare, I have not seen this to be true. They all talk and develop in their own time.

  • They are practicing to become grown men who don't like to talk either.

  • That is not true at all. My son started at 7 months and was full sentences by 12 months and paragraphs by 18 months. I know girls that said nothing unitl way later.

  • Because the males don't say anything unless it's important.
