I posted this in another group...but need answers
YellUGH!! My mom keeps telling me that "repetition is key".
Ok, so this is the thing, I'm a SAHM and my 10 month old only knows ONE word. Da-da, THAT'S IT!!! So I've been trying colors and numbers, words, everything. And he looks at me like I'm not the shapest tool in the shed. Lol. Ya know? So let me know if I should just try something else or stick with what isn't working. Undecided
Thx in advance.

Give it time..I repitition does work..Don't worry..Just be patient.  :) Your little one may not get it right away,  he will figure it out..remember children learn at different paces..you will be pleasantly suprised..but make it fun for him..not work...:) They tend to resist if they are being pushed too much and they sense your frustration and stress..

MOMS KNOW BEST.  repetion is the key, just read to him show him pictures of different things tell him what they are, in everyday life when he is drinking water tell him its water, juice, milk etc.  When he points to something or is playing with something tell him what it is, say words to him everyday, I never thougth my son would say certain words and one day out of the blue he said a word I didnt think he would ever say, they take in so much, and I know they wont say a word unless they know they can actually say it.

Hang in there, he will be talking before you know it.

My son is 15 months and he says 10 or so words.  Dada being the first word, he says mama, kitty, teddy, doggie, bailey (our dogs name), go, bubbles, thank you, oh oh or oh no, cookie, balloon but comes out boon,

Just show him pictures and tell him what they are, he will surprise you someday.
