At what age do you expect children to begin speaking in complete sentences?

2 years old: A "complete sentence" is a little different to different people, but generally we want 2 year olds to be able to say 2 words together and have them be related (doggy up!). By 2 1/2 to 3 y we would expect them to say a more complete sentence like what most people think of (mommy, where go my lollypop?). Bilingual children may speak a little later due to the brain learning 2 words for the same thing. ...Read more

From 5-10 yrs. kids think of what's right & fair as immutable, adult-made rules. From 10-12 yrs., children "get" that what's " right" may change with the situation. ...Read more
