What to do about 21 month olds still not talking

Misty - posted on 05/21/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




I have 21 month old twins, boy and girl. My son will say "bye bye" and "up" when in the mood. My daughter says "up" once in a while. They are not around other kids. We try to make them say what they want instead of just giving it to them because we know what they want, but mommy can only take so much of the screaming and I give in . Any suggestions???

Talk to them a lot- when you're cooking or cleaning or playing, try saying your stream of thought out loud. Keep encouraging them like you are. Take them to the library or play groups. Read books, sing songs, nursery rhymes. My first didn't really talk until 22 months, and then it exploded, and he was on the earlier side, so I would say you're fine.
