My kids are 3 and 4 and I have a friend who'd child is 3.
My kids have a great vocabulary and when they want or need something they tell me in full sentences. ex. Can I have a drink of water? Her child speaks kind of babyish. ex. me drink. My kids have started talking like this too and it is driving me nuts! I tell them that they are big kids who have big words and that they should use them.
Am I wrong to be bothered by this? Should I tell my friend how I feel?
I'm concerned for her child as the 3 yr olds will be going to school next year and I'm afraid her child won't be able to properly communicate with the teacher and she won't be there to explain what it is that her child is saying.
She is a good friend but she is very sensitive and I don't want to upset her. But I also don't want my kids regressing.
If you think I should talk with her, what/hoe should I say it?
