My 5-year-old daughter talks a lot. But when she does, it's in second person (i.e. the second person in the conversation), saying what she expects I would say when directed towards her. So she's not speaking in first person, but in first person from my perspective.
For example, she will say "I will take you out to a bike ride this evening" pointing to me, as she wants me to say that. What she means is "Let's go on a bike ride," or "Take me on a bike ride".
Another example is when she wants to comment on the temperature of something. She will say, "Is it hot?" as though I am asking the question, when in reality she is trying to say, "It is hot".
It has been rather cute, so we kept going like this for the last couple of years. But she is growing up now and needs to talk normally in social settings.
How can I get her to speak in first person and also is this indicative of a larger problem?
