    It's not common. The question is, does he understand what he's doing? A kindergartener might be advanced enough in reading to read Harry Potter in terms of being able to pronounce the words, but does he have the life experience to comprehend the story? Probably not.

    NORMAL. 18-month olds are too young to even walk. A parent must read to them and they know NOTHING about math.

    My kid doesn’t read or do anything like that, he’s not yet 1. He understands that if he has one and gets another one...he has more than one but he doesn’t know it’s called two

    It's not common, but it's certainly in a good way. Early reading is one of the signs of a high IQ, which of course is a very good thing. Keep encouraging him!

    Closer to 24 months for many but, many of these kids don't actually comprehend what they are doing. My daughter in K and 1st grade(4 to 6) had many friends that could rattle off 1 to 100 and do simple math. Yet if you asked them to move five spaces on a game board, or pick up ten pencils. They couldn't do it. They weren't making the connection. They could pick up a book and read you the words, but if you asked them what they just read, they had no idea. That young of a child that con as you say and then tell you about what they just read, or hand you 7 beans. Would be the exception. If you test, use different materials then what they already know.

    Not really but it’s good he can do that. Keep him in books and watch him become a prodigy. Don’t let society change this star
