My baby is 4 years. And recently she came from the kindergarten and began to stammer. When I spoke to the teachers who work in the kindergarten, they told me that there is nothing wrong. When I talk to my daughter she from time to time stutters, so I have to constantly correct her. I read that the cause of stuttering can be a fright. How to help a child to cope with stuttering? What can cause stuttering of children?
My friends had a similar situation when their child came from the kindergarten, and began to stammer. The same teachers told that nothing had happened. Now a child is 7 years, and he cannot be cured, because parents didn’t react at once. Doctors say the child had severe stress. Because it happened long time ago parents can’t find out what was the reason of such stress - child didn’t remember. And when he started stammering – he couldn’t explain it to the parents, as he only started to talk. First of all you shouldn’t panic. You should talk to the child slowly, enunciating each word in syllables that the child repeats, in no case you cannot blame him for not the correct pronunciation, you should also to pay a lot of time to your child.
It's so sad to hear this( Always sad to hear about the problems that kids are facing with, without the ability to overcome by themselves. The best choice, of course, would be to consult with the speech therapist. those people are professionals in such problems. Besides, try to figure out, what exactly happened in the kindergarten, and what might have frightened your daughter. Such problems always do have some distinct reasons underneath them. You better do that fast. The longer you hesitate, the smaller becoming the chances for your daughter to regain fluency in her speech.
there was a good advice to take the kid to the speech therapist. to the psychologist as well. the roots of the most part of the phobias of all kind and of such flaws are hidden in the childhood. And if you not treat them the way you should in the early age, they will progress. It will become harder and harder to overcome them as the person gets older. Me, for example, I still have the fear of spiders. As for the stuttering, I know one guy, he is a bassist in the band. So, he stutters terribly) but also he sings. the funny thing is that when he is singing - you would never guess that he has such a flaw as the stuttering. Interesting, isnt it?:)
well, i may say it is kind of psychological trauma for you kid. you need to be more careful and take it to the children thrapist. perhaps he feels something realy bad there, perhaps somebody did something bad, and the atmosphere for you kid is not really npleasing there. you need to help him, cause in future it can lead to bad consequences.
If you are not able to correct that problem - then it is ok, I think. Well, your kid may not become the news reporter, but there are plenty of other marvellous professions, where noone would give a damn about the way your kid talks. Though, the best way would be to correct that flaw, of course. Several people here already advised you to consult with the specialist. Did you do that? Each day you hesitate - your kid looses the chances to regain the ability to communicate normally. Think about that. I hope that you are going to write back, when you two will have some progress on this problem of yours.
Wha-wha-whatsup, folks?:) do you remember where is that from?:) The Looney Tunes cartoons from WB, the Porky pig) I always liked the way he stuttered) Dude - in the childhood that is not a big problem! A few months of work with the specialist (as it was advised before, I can see) - will do the trick! It will be much harder to do when the kid will become older - that is so. So do not hesitate, do not look for the easy ways on the forums - and call to the psychologist , make the appointment. Longer you hesitate - it is going to be harder to overcome the problem.

The very phrase made me to recall my own childhood, thanks) there are many flaws that may posses our bodies, our consciousness. sometimes we are able to get rid of them , sometimes - no. I think stuttering is the one that is pretty easy to get rid of. But there are cases when that is impossible for some reason. I think that in modern society these people are having normal lives, and they are tolerated. In the end, it does not matter if the person is stuttering or no.. the main thing is to be a good person, to help others, to be the professional in the work you do. then you will be respected.

you are right about that, of course. But, on the other hand, such flaw as the stuttering closes the way to many really good specialities. Basically, everything, that is connected to the public speech and the public relations. the journalism, politics, everything that is connected to the stage - acting, for example. There was a good film about the problem of stuttering - "the king's speech" - about one of the British monarchs, the end of the XIX - beginning of the XX centuries, if I am not mistaking. You really should see it - I mean you, the guy, who started this topic.
there are always ways to overcome this flaw, especially in childhood. But it is not that hopeless for the adults as well . It is nice that someone remembered the "Kings speech" here. There is an even more famous story about the flaws of the pronunciation actually. Who remembers here , who is Damocles? where did the saying come from about the Damoclus sword? Anyone? ) Ok - then google it. i am not suggesting to apply it to the kid in this particular case.. But as you see people were facing this problem for many centuries - and they were managed to overcome it.
