    ***Dad said he doesn't understand what the baby is talking about. He claimed the baby is from outer space. Mum said that, "Don't be silly, dad. The speech lady says he will grow out of it. My brother was backward in speaking."***

    1) What does it mean of "The speech lady says he will grow out of it. My brother was backward in speaking."

    Many thanks.
    Ju,

    "The speech lady says he will grow out of it." The speech therapist is saying that the child is probably developmentally delayed and will eventually speak in a manner that other people will understand.

    "My brother was backward in speaking." There is a good chance that Mum's brother was also developmentally delayed. As he matured (moved forward in age) his speech improved.

    "Out it all comes" means that thoughts and words that have been repressed (unspoken) for a period of time often are verbalized when individuals become angry or confrontational.

    Cheers,

    1) What does it mean of "The speech lady says he will grow out of it.The speech therapist says the problem will go away when the child is older.
    My brother was backward in speaking." My brother was slow in learning to speak.

    Dad and mum are packing for trip with a lot of problem occured.This is not a good sentence. During their conversation, they always said, "Out it all comes...."

    2) What does it mean of "Out it all comes.." Probably it means 'It all has to come out.' Maybe they had to repack their suitcase several times, and each time they had to do it again they said "Out it all comes...(we have to do it again").
