DD just turned 18mo and acts similarly. I think it is normal for this age and stage. Plus she is teething. She is feeling the need to be really independent right now and wants to do everything contrary to what I suggest. I wouldn't be too worried I think he sounds like he is developing normally. If it would make you feel better though you should talk to your pedi about it. They have things they look for that would diagnose anything like autism or other behavioral disorders. Good luck!View Thread
Hi! Just wanted to let you all know that I started a new exchange for
parents of biracial/multiracial children. It can be found on the main
exchanges search page in the parenting section. Check it out if you get
a chance. We could use some members! View Thread
