Re: Does anyone else have a child who NEVER shuts up?

God yes. And I'm pretty introverted so the constant talking is exhausting. And he wants a response, more than his little brother can give. The little one is on his way to nonstop chatter as wel.. I have no idea where these kids came from.

DS will be 3 in a few days and he never stops talking. Never! I don't even know how he breathes through all the chattering. Does it get worse as time goes on? OMG, please say no.

Totally the age. Time is the only cure! I can totally relate. We will miss it when they become teenagers and lock themselves in their rooms though. My 10 year old daughter is already starting to give me the one word answers. Ugh.

DD isn't like this, DS1 is at times, DS2 is all the time.

They've all learned to stop and give us a bit of space when we ask, though. We just tell them we do want to hear what they have to say, but we need a few minutes of quiet before we can listen to any more.

My 11 year old talks non stop. If there is absolutly nothing to talk about she will start down memory lane with "remember when...." or will just start singing a song. She loves to read, and if there is no book in her hand she feels that she needs to be talking.

Re: Does anyone else have a child who NEVER shuts up?

Try to remember the days when they couldn't talk and would just start a screaming meltdown to get their point across numerous times a day. That's my daughter right now. I hate the "throw the head back, arch their back so you almost drop them" move they do lol.

Re: Does anyone else have a child who NEVER shuts up?

My 5 year old is a constant chatterbox. You'd never have any clue that she didn't really say a word until she was 2. She talks constantly unless she's sleeping or into something she knows she's not supposed to be. She talks to herself, her toys, her feet, hands, her baby sister (that I don't really mind - it keeps her sister entertained), to me, her daddy, her imaginary friend George....constant stream of consciousness from her.

The times it annoys me are when she asks a question that I just answered, or when I'm having a conversation with someone else that she doesn't understand and she's giving her two cents. Especially when I'm on the phone! I'm trying to teach her phone etiquette, but it's not sinking in.
