Dear Speech Gods,
Please, please, find it in your infinite wisdom to aid my son in learning a few words to use in place of whining and screaming when frustrated. I'm thinking "help", "stop", "down", "mad", "please".

I believe this is known in the parlance as "finding your words".

Thank you,
A Frazzled Mother

p.s. knitting, dowel, brick, cous-cous, bamboo, etc. are fabulous words. Thank you for those.

Yes, it helps when the little ones learn to "use their words". Soon you may wish he'd stop using his words!

I know, it's a double-edged sword. I may not want to know what some of those gestures and grunts mean.
