My daughter jus turned three in May. She has started doing what I call baby talk. I can't stand it!! She has three older brothers and not one of them ever did that. Any suggestions on how to get her to stop?

I agree with Molly. Ignore or only acknowledge it enough to say it won't work. My son is a little over 2 and if he says a word poorly that I know he has said better, I tell him I don't know what he means and ask him to tell me again.

Tell her you don't understand baby talk and act like you can't hear her until she uses big girl words. She will come around when she really wants something. (Don't give in!)
Good luck
