My son was doing good with talking, in fact I was told he was ahead of his age group. He is going to be five in November and starts kindergarten in the fall. I have been trying to do somethings with him that I know they do in school, ie yarn art which is yarn in glue put on a ballon. So when we tried it today he started doing it seemed to be having fun then told me he didn't want to get dirty. I said thats fine we don't have to finish it it is up to you. He pushed his chair out and went and washed his hands. I warmed my self up a scone and he demanded one. I told him I want to hear nice words before he gets anything. He started to pout. I tried to talk to him but he growled at me, which is what my one year old niece does. I have told him many times that he doesn't have to act like her but he does. He use to tell me everything now he just shuts down. He can talk all day about machines and planes and trains but as soon as I ask what is wrong I can't get a word out of him. Anyone else go through this and what did you do to get them to talk.
