These questions are of interest to all parents who have a baby, especially if they have their first.
When do children start to talk?
Most of the children say the first sounds, having at least some sense, about a year. Consider a norm if a year he speaks from two to ten words. All children are different in nature and in ability. A sociable and friendly child wants to talk, so he will speak earlier. Calm and prudent likes to observe everything that interests him, and does not seek to communicate. He likes to play on his own, and conversations do not interest him. Such a kid will speak later, when he has a desire to share his thoughts with someone. Basically, children by three years already clearly or indistinctly speak. But if the child is silent at this age, this does not mean that he lags behind in development, but you need to consult a psychologist.
It is noticed that girls start talking before boys. When children begin to talk, sooner or later, depends largely on parents, the atmosphere in the family, and the attitude of the elders to the child. If the family is tense, parents often argue, talk in elevated tones and they do not care about their child, he will most likely have a desire not to talk, but to cry.Some parents do not communicate much with each other and with the child, and he, not feeling to themselves attention on their part, himself does not seek to communicate with them and closes in his world.
And it also happens that adults talk too much with the baby, and often command him and do not allow him to show any initiative of his own. This child has a feeling of embarrassment in the presence of adults. And he has no desire to talk with them. It is noticed that those children who parents are too cautious, intuitively guessing the slightest desire of their child, start talking late. Such actions lead to the fact that the child does not develop independence, he does not show any initiative, everything that he desires and so instantly is presented to the elders. He simply does not need to say something.
