My 17 month old doesn't talk at all and I was wondering how many other's are talking. My son talked a lot by this age, and it's a struggle to get my daughter to say anything. She answer's questions by shaking her head, and she "sings" and dances a lot but doesn't talk. I've heard her say many words but she's said it about once and never again.
She also wants to start using the potty but I'm having a horrible time with it. She wants to pee standing up and I've even made my son sit and she STILL wants to stand. I've tried to give up on the potty training for now, but she won't give up. She takes off her diapers, and has even had many accidents near or in the bathroom. I don't know what to do, any advice is greatly appreciated!!
