Q:

My 3 year old uses pronouns "me, her, him, them" instead of "they, she, I," for example, "him going to the store." Is this a problem?

What the Expert Says:

Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk!

Your child is still at the beginning stages of language acquisition.  I believe that misuse of pronouns as you have described is not a problem at the age of three.  Keep in mind that his language models (parents, daycare providers, etc.) should continue to use the correct forms in his/her presence.

Thanks again for your question!
