My daughter will be 4 in August, she’s an only child, but she is number 9 of 10 grandkids and attends daycare 4 times a week.
Over the last few weeks she has started speaking in her own language and substituting words for gibberish for which i am continually telling her to cut it out….by now I’m thinking am i doing the right thing?
Am i hindering her creativity by telling her to stop? The words seem to be a play on normal words, which does my head in, but no matter how many times i tell her she’s not a baby and she needs to stop it, she always reverts back to it, and asks me to repeat them back to her.
Is this normal, and should i just let it play itself out?
