Ok, so I have an issue and I don't know what to do about it, so let me explain. My son is 20 months old he still isn't talking which has me worried a bit thats the first problem, ok bear with me this might be long. My son was in daycare when he was 6 to 9 months and he did awesome but mind u I was a single mom with only the help of my mom, well his father and I got back together and I moved out of state where we could be with him, I was a stay at home mom after that until he was 18 months, the only people he was around was his father and I and the neighbor who has a 3 year old and a 5 year old and he would do great being alone with them when I would need to leave him there for a few hours, well we ended up moving out of state again to a town where we don't know anyone, we have started taking him to daycare because both, of us work, its a lady that does it out her house and she has about no more than ten kids, well my son is having a hard time, he screams pretty much the whole time and he won't eat. sleep or play with the other kids, she says that she cannot even get him to smile which is not like him he is a very happy child that smile not stop at home, well anyways at first she tried telling me he has some disorder maybe autisim or something like that now she is say all kinds of things like he needs to go to a care center where he is surrounded with a bunch of kids but I am not sure about that, she odviuosly doesn't have the time or the patience to deal with him, so please I don't know what to do,should I find a center, or a babysitter, and do u think he has autisim because of this please help, i am stressed and confused, sorry for the novel!
