Is this normal
Every child is different. My first little boy, didnt start talking much until he turned 2. Before then it was always a few words/baby talk, and or showing me what he wanted, but I started by always getting him to say please and thankyou. He has always been very social, and hes also always been very helpful, and does things/ figures things out with ease. He just turned 4 in january.My second little boy is turning 3 in may. His favorite word is no and his favorite phrase is "No! Mine!" lol That said he talks well in my opinion, much more clearly than his brother at that age. He does point to things if he is being shy/ throwing a little fit- like not listening or talking when I ask him what he wants... in many ways I think its just him testing me. When he points to things that he can either get on his own/show me, or things he knows the workds to, I will ask him what he wants. If he cant tell me, he doesnt get it. Same with if hes cying and wont tell me what happened (he talks well enough to tell me/show me) If he doesnt talk ten I just say oh Im sorry you need to use your words I cant understand you. He will throw a five minute fit then come up say sorry and ask for what ever he wants, and says please and thankyou. Smetimes both boys do not want to share... in that case I will give them a time tlimit and say 5- 10 more minutes, then you need to share, and will explain to my other child that he is not to take the toy away until the other gives it to him. So then when the time is up I say okay youve had that toy for a while, its time to share, please give that to your brother and you can watch tv/ play with this instead, they usually do very good with that. As far as him not really having much interaction with other kids, I would try taking him to the park. But like I said, all kids are individuals, he may be shy, and it may take him a while to talk. Like I said my first didnt really start talking until he was two. Even then we still had to work on different words and anunciation... all that. And sometimes boys do take a bit longer to do things than girls, so just keep that in mind, but I hpe those suggestions help
