I am kind of concerned. Any advice is very highly appreciated.
My son is 2 and a half yrs. He is very verbal and has a very good vocabulary. Very talkative and and always asking questions.
I have my nephew who is 3 yrs old and is border line autistic. He is a very bright kid who actually is very much interested in alphabets and words and even numbers. And since he likes repetitive things he likes counting numbers and stuff. He can actually even spell words which is pretty advanced for his age. So he is a sort of genius.
Coming back to my son, he is interested in a wide variety of things. He can label stuff and when we show him a page from a story book he can actually tell whats happening in that situation. But he does not share the same interest in alphabets and numbers. I mean he knows his alphabets but when i try to teach him words he does not pay attention. He does listen when i read out loud. He does knows numbers but does not repeat them very often.
I wanted to know if i am being unfair to him by comparing him to my nephew. He still hasn't shown interest in writing, though he scribbles. He is very fond of cars and like to play with them for some time in the day. He goes to the day care and I haven't received any complaints about him yet.
I am concerned that he will not do well academically. Or is he at least right on his milestones.
