calmly explain to him that although you like that he cares so much for his brother that in order for his brother to develop he has to learn to tell us himself what he wants.tell your five year old ways he can help teach these words to his brother that way he feel like he is still being a helper. i was the oldest and this is what my mom tdid to help me when teaching my youngest brother to talk. be very calm and patient so he does not think he is naughty

Sorry, basically my issue is that my 23 month old son isnt really talking yet and when there is something he wants and he points to it and that my very caring 5 year old will just tell me or go and get what Jacob wants which isnt helping me with trying to teach him words

I'm not sure what you mean by this question, however, I'm wondering why would you not allow or want your 5 year old (son I'm assuming) to talk to his toddler brother?
Care to elaborate for a better response?
