Oh, please. B-| As they say in the start these are words and phrases that she`s seen alot and MEMORIZED. I was beginning to read at 2 years old, and before I turned 3 I could read any beginner level book you gave me. I didn`t memorize words, I went through Phonetics. This segment isn`t ANYTHING special.

I can`t remember when I learned to read.
But I remember reading silently, in my head for the first time! It was a Spot book (the dog?). I was so proud.

Well, I could........
I can`t come up with anything!
I`m a FAILURE!
But I can tell you right now, those parents are going to be pressuring her on her grades and projects and all that crap that ends up making kids into lonely 26 year old accountants.

My uncle is freaking out because his son is turning 4 in December and can`t read... he knows letters, it`s just that my uncle, being a professor in engineering, is afraid his kid not being like 99th percentile in intelligence.

Wow, it`s amazing that you can remember things from when you were a baby. :O I have no clear recollection of my life until about 3-4 years. Just bits.
Or maybe I`m just not a baby genius like you."

Sucks to be you.

"lmao prime, agua was one of my first words too :P"

Manny135 made my day! lol, that was hilarious!

And, catlikegrace, I remember when I first started reading too. It was while my sister was reading "There`s A Monster At The End Of This Book" featuring Grover from Seasame Street. I started reading it myself and realized I recognized the words. So to test me my sister gave me "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish" by Dr. Seuss and told me to try reading it. It was a bit harder, but I could do it. I had just turned 4.

Oh everyone just needs to shush.

The kid`s amazing. You are not the kid.

I could play with pudding by the age of 6 months. Doesn`t everyone just LOVE to brag about themselves?

I called BS on Manny135`s claims, just off the basis that he`s writing comments on the comment section of an IAB link. rofl

That`s incredibly impressive. I wasn`t an early reader at all. I -do- remember when I first learned, though, when I first caught on to it. I was five and I read Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss.

I was a little smarter than my 6th grade teacher, I guess.

But only in a few things.
He didn`t know what a spirit bear was, or that it was a kind of bear.

And a few other crappy things that don`t matter.

I . . Have a feeling. . . He`s right . . behind me.

I agree with you "primetimekin".
This is definitely not impressive.
After two days of being born I was able to read, drive and I was potty trained.
After six months I could speak in 32 languages and I had my first job translating egyptian hieroglyphs.
On my first birthday I was trained in the art of tae kwan do and I could fly.
I was elected as the mayor of my town 2 months later.
Maintaining all of this I still found the time to be a super hero and save people from burning buildings and what not.
now age five and a father of 18 kids, I am living a happy life.
I guess people are very easily distracted from the true baby geniuses like you and me.

I didn`t say a thing until i was 3... now i`m working on my doctorate - big woop!

It`s like all those kids in the spelling bees - wow, you can spell everything that others just use a spell check for - useful!

...this kid may be able to read but at most she`ll have a head-start on her vocabulary. HArdly gonna get her a better job

Spoke well by 2 years."

Thats not impressive.

Children can do a lot of parents started treating them like adults.

My mom didn`t want to buy me diapers. I was potty-trained by the year.

My sister would always say "agua" to me over and over again.

I had a good laugh when she started saying "cookie" repeatedly. Then I realized she was reaching for a book that had pictures of cookies on it.

I`d start my kid on the same language learning plan those parents are using. More communication, less whining frustration.

Hehe, both my sister and I could read before we could walk (me at 17 months and my sister at 16) :->

Far better than that, too.

nothing really special, considering that a child develops sight first, and communication second.

Psych student.

I guess what makes it different, is that most people don`t try to educate their kids. These people obviously have spent time with their child, and tried to teach her how to read. Also, not talking in baby talk can help a child to talk and communicate earlier. That crap women do, "aw ish a wittle bayyybeeeeeee awent yew!! yesh yew ahhhr!" Well, they learn language that way, and it can slow development considerably.

Yay! Reading babies!
I started reading in kindergarten, but I had no idea how to read cursive.

Why are people acting as if the parents forced their daughter to learn to read at such an early age? All they did was read to her and make sure that she had lots of stimulation in order to ensure that she can speak and communicate effectively. There is nothing wrong with that, and could prevent problems later in life. I had to go to speech therapy when I was little due to a lisp that was partly influenced by people saying how "cute" it was so I made it worse for the attention. This little girl is getting tons of positive reinforcement for speaking properly, and it never hurts to start a love of books and reading at an early age.

@airizombie
thats pretty damned impressive. i refused to really read until i was about in first grade. i didn`t see the point, but numbers kicked ass. still do imo lol

though i will agree. things like this do show extreme cognitive development, though little kids about a year old are friggin sponges. most little kids could read or do maths at that age with the right parenting. so kudoos to those parents. they are doing something right, thats for damn sure.

Beneath that cute smile of hers, all I see is pure evil, evil genius. I for once will bow to our young overlord, begging for my life to be spared, when she takes over Earth by when she`s 7.

I couldn`t read until I was 5, but I read the first 4 Harry Potter books by myself when I was 6. (seriously)

All evens out in the end.

And yea, ne028, totally unnecessary.

I could read at that age too, but nobody made a big deal about it. I started reading at a year. I don`t think it`s that difficult to teach your kids.
If you have a book for every day of the week and switch it up sometimes, its not enough to memorize it, but it`s enough to teach it.

@ ne028:
Wait, what? So, let me get this straight...
Actually, no. I refuse to try to think at your level. Not worth it T_T

This is very impressive, but I agree with Bekll. Is all this really necessary?

Adorable and impressive, but it`s not necessary. I couldn`t read until the average age (whatever that may be) and became a fantastic reader by third grade while everyone else was stumbling with the words. And this was in English... my second language.

I am now a Grammarian and writer.
