Hi Nbg.

I have a 2 yrs old dd and she talks a lot!! She doesn't string sentences together but she makes herself understood.eg instead of 'Mummy what are you doing', it's 'mummy doing?'

At what age did they say their first word? she was about 8/9 months old I think and it was dada (she's always been a daddy's girl)

How old were they when they started walking? She was about 14 months when she started to walk unaided

Do you read to your child? Yes - occasionally

If so how much and when in the day? not very often as she wants to read the books herself and point to all the pictures

Do your children watch tv? Yes

If so roughly for how long, in a day? she watches cbeebies and play house disney in the morning in the evening for an hour.

OK here's a spanner in your works:

DS1

Age 6- no words that are recognisable to strangers although I know what some sounds mean (*mmdan is toilet for example)
Started talking around 8 months - said about 50 words before stopping
Late walker- 17 months
Read to him all the time when he was little- less now - although he still has favourites form his baby days and he still knows them off by heart (correct sound and intonation if not actual words)
He's at school but sometimes read some favoourite books at night- often don't though.
Yes he watches TV - usually for about an hour after school- used ot like teletubbies when little - didn't watch much else.

Jimjams Fri 22-Jul-05 20:55:27
