My son is gifted for his age.. even if he wasnt I would love him just the same.. but Im very proud of him. He's almost 4 and according to my younger sons PT he is on the level of a 6 or 7 year old. My younger son is slightly delayed and as I said, I love him just the same. It's just how life worked out for us. I'm proud of him too he's come a long way in his therapy.
My mom runs an in-home daycare. She looks after a little girl who is 5, but is disabled. She cannot speak, express herself or use the potty. The only words she does know she repeats over and over to get her point across. Im proud of my son because he accepts her and interacts with her as if she were normal. They even have "conversations" with one another. It makes her so happy :) But, I noticed some days when he comes home he starts to mimic her behavior. He wont speak normally in a sentence.. he'll repeat the same word over and over. Maybe i'm silly to worry, but will this affect him? He throws more fits than usual too, but of course that could be related to anything.
Should I worry? What can I do to make sure he doesn't back track? Or should I just correct him and go about my business?
