|My son has started to stutter. Should I worry?
It’s common for a toddler to stutter because vocabulary
is not fully developed. Be patient if your child stutters.
Toddlers tend to repeat sounds and words. Stuttering often
happens when a child is upset, excited, tired or when pressured
to ask or answer questions. Give your son the opportunity
to talk slowly while you listen attentively and also try
not to interrupt. Try to understand what he is saying to
avoid him from becoming frustrated. Let him express himself
freely without giving any body cues. If his stuttering persists
or he is showing physical tension or he is reluctant to
speak because of the problem, ask your child’s doctor
about a speech therapist.
