My ds2 3yr3month doesn't say "I" but "my" in its place, eg, my not want to play, my tired.
I this anything to worry about at this age?

Lots of children do it so nothing to worry about at the moment, most will grow our of it naturally. My DS does it but he has speech delay as well. His therapist said that we could say to him e.g if he says my want to play, we could say 'that's good, you could also say I want to play'. He is beginning to grow out if it and now probably says my/I 50% of the time each.

sorry misread the age as 2.3. So my thoughts may be completely nonsensical sorry.
