Should I be worried?

I have a 2 year old DD and a 7 month old DS. My DD barely talks!!! She babbles still. She will say I love you, I love you daddy, bye, hi, hi how are you, but it's all babbled and only DH and I can understand her. She turned 2 over a month ago and I'm really worrried that she is delayed with her speech.

Note: She has some behavioral issues that go way beyond terrible two's. She will headbutt anything and everything until she bleeds when she is upset, I can't stop her screaming. Ive tried spanking, time outs, corner, no movies, taking toys away etc but it's just making it worse! DH and I rarely argue and when we do our children are never around.

I have tried flash cards with DD, educational tv shows like Leap Frog to help her with her speech etc.. All she wants to do is eat the cards or tear them up. I read to her but she tears the book up as I'm trying to read. IDK WHAT TO DO!!!

 Next time you go into to see your pedi, I would bring this up. She may need a lil speech therapy but at least you can look into how to get that ball rolling. Have you looked into ASL? It could be helpful for the both of you.

Sign language I think she's referring to

ASL (American Sign Language) its a good thing to learn. She may need her tounge clipped and speach therapy.

 Well my DS (6) is autistic and I've noticed a lot of similarities between him and DD. Like she lines up all of her shoes and leaves them there, headbutts everything when she's mad and he didn't talk until he was a little over 3

I'd def. get her checked out to be safe.. my cousin was the same! but it could also be that she just dont wanna rush talking :) kids are like that.. we do everything for them so they feel they need to do anything.

 it's american sign language. you can look it up on youtube  to start with simple words, like more, mom, dad, milk, drink
