My son is almost 18 months old and still has only said about 3 words. I have been told that I could be too perceptive of his needs so he doesn't need to ask for things. He has been getting more and more frustrated with me now though, because I can't understand exactly what he wants. I think this is a good thing. I hope this means he will get fed up and just start talking. But this has been going on for a long time. What can I do to encourage him to start talking?
