Why My Child Mimics Your Sentences

For most parents the answer to this may seem obvious, however I’ve been in the situation a few times now where I’ve needed to defend my youngster’s behavior from an upset or annoyed adult. These aren’t just singles or ‘dinks’ mind you, they’re young/new parents, and even experienced grand-folk, too.

To put it simply, she is expanding her vocabulary, learning how to pronounce these new words, and learning new mannerisms through mimicking. That’s it!

In a way she looks up to you and is then learning about you through copying. That’s how growing works! That’s how they learn to crawl, walk, eat, run… I know that this shouldn’t really need to be explained, but in my experience, some people truly don’t realize this very simple fact.

Happy mimicking my little friends! Grow on!

Xx
