The fact that the parents are both speech pathologist must have someting to do with this! Either way it is pretty amazing.

My mother said that I learned to read at age two. She says I used to read her novels right along with her. She says that she thought I would have a major love of reading, etc. Much to her dismay I don't care to read to the level that she would have expected. LOL I also was not a big fan of school, even though I have my Bachelors and got good grades. On another note, my hubby didn't even speak until he was 3 and he went on to IVY league university's and absolutely loves to read. While this little girl's reading is impressive, it is not a total indicator of what the future will hold.

My nephew started reading at age 2. We didn't teach him or pressure him, he just learned on his own. We used to be in the car and he would see a McDonalds and he would say "McDonalds" or a Dunkin Donuts and he would say "Dunkin Donuts". We didn't think much of it until we were sitting in the car waiting for someone and he looked at a sign and read "No Standing Anytime". Needless to say we were freaked out. From then on he would just pick up books and magazines and newspapers! and read them to himself. Sometimes people wouldn't believe it and they would grill him and show him different books or write words out but he read them all. Eventually he turned into a really bright kid who at 4 would point to the sky and say "Look Aunt Jessica a cirrus cloud". I had no clue and I probably didn't even spell it right but when I looked it up later he was correct. He's 19 now and in college but he's a major slacker. ha!

does she understanding what she's reading or does she just know how to put letters together? looks like a parlor trick. relax mom and dad, everyone reads eventually. by 8 she and her peers will all be at the same level. and there are some autistic kids that "stim" off words like this, but she seems pretty social and aware.

Forget about the kid, the cameraman is hot! :rotfl: That is quite amazing. I have been reading to my son since birth and he cannot read words, but he does know what is up next and such. But I would rather not have a child with such skills. There would be too much pressure to figure out what to do next, just like the mom said.

I'm certainly not an education expert, but while i don't see a problem in teaching her to read an such an early age, i certainly don't think they should be showing her off on TV... she should just be the cute baby girl she is instead of worriying about having to read words for a cameraman

whether or not this is natural or forced, its a great gift. But also a great burden. I fear she'll lose much of her childhood to the "great resource for humanity" idea. She just needs to be a kid.

I should be impressed, but for some reason it makes me kind of sad. I learned to read at 3 because my father read most of the newspaper to me every evening - entertaining both of us - and he would follow the words with his finger. But, to learn to read at less than a year and a half...!? Either they've seriously been grilling the poor child or she's a super mega baby genius. The fact that they are parading her around on the news makes me lean toward the seriously grilling the poor child option... :(

She is amazing!! I just hope they don't force her to read like that when she is getting tired all the time.
