Hello, My baby daughter is 21 months. She only speaks maa, baba, dada n some sounds which are not clear. As we have a nuclear family she is only exposed to her parents. I use to take her out in evening to a park where she meet some children. But she wont intermingle soon however she use to show interest with older people but less with kids. I want to know how to encourage her speaking habits and mixing with kids. Please help me if you have any tips. Thanks Jhuma

Same problem with my daughter as well, She is also 21 months old. she repeats all our moments, she dances, do actions for rhymes but not speaking out. She goes to Day Care. Before going to PlaySchool, she was speaking few words but now she stopped speaking that as well. I think the problem with many languages in school.

Hi jhuma! Your daughter is going through the initial stages of learning to communicate. A toddler goes through key transformations at this age on multiple fronts like independence, collaboration, expressing in words and so on. At the same time, like anything new it takes the child some effort and time to get theough to this milestone. She would see if she really needs to learn it or can she still get most of what she wants without speaking. It is important that not only do you encoragw her to speak and ask for things but also not play to the same signs or single words as before. You may even ask her to repeat with ypu on words and sentences and it may take some time initially. Stay patient and encourage her to speak and ask for what she wants. Book reading, story telling shall help too.

My daughter is now staying home with my parents, now i see improvement in her communication. She actually speaks out, and telling few words. Let her interact more with others and take her out, let mingle with other kids also. It's easy way to learn words actually. My mother was taking her out during evenings and now she is better.
