My son is 18 months old and I cannot understand a word he's saying. Most of the time, he doesn't even try. We try to repeat words as much as possible and teach him the names of different objects but he's not interested at all. Most of the time he just yells and whines until I figure out what he wants. I've tried not giving him what he wants until he uses words or at least sounds but it just makes him cry harder and I give in. I spend most of my day being annoyed and frustrated because he cries so much. Any advice??
