  • My son is almost 2... he loves to SCREAM, sing, laugh, talk... and he does it all while he's jumping up and down around the house. It's funny for a while, but sometimes I tell him "shhhh". LOL

  • My 11 year old started talking (repeating sounds) at 6 months and has never stopped talking since!! You will get used to it. He has taken to making up words and using them in every day conversation. I tune him out a lot. He knows how to get my attention when he wants to really tell me something.

  • My son talks ALL the time; he even told me yesterday that he "likes to hear himself." Soo.. LOL.. I don't know. I've been tuning him out for quite some time, only replying with a "Yep," or "mhm" to the less important rambles.

  • My daughter is almost 6 and she talks ALL... THE... TIME! I pretty much just listen and give her feedback every few sentences. The only thing that drives me nuts is when she gives me a blow-by-blow of a show we're watching together or a situation in the room that I've witnessed alongside her. I just give her affirmation like "yeah, that was a green slimy monster chasing Scooby Doo and Scooby Doo hid in a closet, didn't he?" to give her the reminder that I'm seeing & hearing the same things she is. It's irritating sometimes (we're only human) but then I remind myself that there are some parents who never get to hear their children speak and then her non-stop talking becomes the most beautiful sound in the world. ;)
