Ipad Obesssion

Tracy F. 6 years ago

My son is 15 months old and all of sudden is obsessed with the Ipad.    We never use it that much mainly just in the car if he is fussing or sometimes at night to do Elmo singing the ABCs.   But he has never been that into it.   lately he is learning multiple new words and fixating on them.  So it kind of started with that because he learned to say the word "Ipad" and he likes to be rewarded by you showing him that you understand the new word he has learned. So he brings you the item, says the word and then wants to do the related activity.  This week its "key" and then he wants to go to the garage and "drive" the car with it and "on/off" he wants to turn the lights on and off while saying it and then the Ipad thing.    Is this behavior part of language acquisition or is he just using his new words to get to do stuff we don't want him to do?

I think he is just learning! I try to teach my daughter on/off..up/down so she always wants to go to the light switch!
