Seriously, the ONLY way mine will even sit (not sit still) is if he is strapped into a seat of some kind.

my main concern tho is teaching him. Ikeep telling him, dont throw toys in the kitchen, he does it anyways, i try to teach him things he should know by now, certain words, names of objects, things like that but his eyes wonder his head turns around and he wont pay attention. i really wanna start potty training him in a few months but he is so wild i dont know if he will do it. In the bath tub i have to wrestle with him to get him clean. i have to wrestle him to get a diaper on, same with clothes. its soooo tuff. he doesnt say bye bye, doesnt say night night, or anything but mama and dada really. he says tickle too but rarely. everytime we are going somewhere i ask "wanna go bye bye?" then i get him ready and as im struggling to do so i am always singling or saying "we are going bye bye!" same with nap/bedtime. "wanna go ny nite?" then i lay him in the crib and say "ny nite!" but during the bye bye he is struggling to get away adn trying to look at something and not pay attention to me. and during nap time or bedtime he is crying and fussing and trying to fight not to go to sleep. so im afraid his wildness and curiosity about toys is affecting his learning. ive been telling him NO since he was 6 months old and he STILL doesnt listen.

Honestly Stachia, he sounds like a very normal little boy. I think some of your expectations are a bit unrealistic. Their attention spans at this age are literally just minutes long.

He also probably senses how stressed you are about wanting him to know/do all these things. Try to relax about things and let him lead the learning process - he will enjoy it more.

((HUGS)) he's still not much more than a baby. It is good to tell him "NO" but don't expect him to follow it. As for the clothing and bath and stuff, make a game of it. JT loves to run when I'm trying to get him dressed and a I play peek-a-boo through his shirt till he comes over. JT has maybe 3-4 words, and I don't push it. Boys tend to be later talkers, 2 of my 3 older boys had only 4-5 words at 18 months. He sounds like a handful but try to enjoy him being little and don't place too much stress on him or yourself.
