The words jostle in your child's mouth. He gets angry ... and you, that worries you. Talking seems so easy!

The problem

Your child repeats the syllables, extends certain vowels, stumbles at the beginning or middle of a sentence. He seems to be making efforts, his breathing is blocked and he is agitated in every way. As a result, he stutters.

Who disturbs it?

  • Your child. Stuttering is an obstacle to exchange and makes relationships difficult ... even if your child is not aware of the problem.
  • You. To speak is to communicate. When you acquire language, you are afraid that your child will fall behind.

He may stutter because he is not physically ready

The tongue, the lips, the palate develop slowly as vocabulary and thought progress very quickly. Everything must be synchronized. When you learn to walk, you stumble. To speak, it's the same thing.

  • What has to be done. Take patience: everything should be in order soon enough.
  • What must he tell him? "Learning to talk is like learning to walk: at first you stumble, you fall a little, it's the same."

He stutters maybe because he wants to do too well

For him, talking is important. So, he sets the bar very high. Result, it blocks!

  • What has to be done. Make him understand that he can not go faster than his current pace. Encourage him. Above all, do not talk in his place. Give him a word when he blocks.
  • What does it tell him? "What are some cakes you want?"

And if you were too demanding

This is one of the factors favoring stuttering. Believing well, some parents ask too much.

  • What has to be done. Let go of the pressure! Parents all want their child to succeed, but everyone has to go at their own pace. Play, sing, tell stories, but give only one piece of information at a time, speak softly, simply.
  • What does it tell him? "We will help you by being more attentive to you", "Tell us when you do not understand a word."

It may be too fast for him!

The pace at home may be too fast. Your little one can not keep up. The words are jostling.

  • What has to be done. Slow down the pace of life of the family. In the morning, instead of telling him ten times to hurry up, get up a quarter of an hour earlier.
  • What does it tell him? "We're in no hurry", "We'll try together", "We'll get there ..."

Mom's words

"It started when Luca was two and a half years old, on the language side, he was skating, he always started his sentences by repeating several times the first syllable of the first word, sometimes he even blocked on several words. We were worried about his entry into kindergarten, he had never been to a community and I was afraid of the reactions of his classmates, and if they made fun of him? went well, we all helped him (us, the teacher, the grandparents ...) by never breaking the communication, helping him for example to finish a word.The episode lasted three or four months and overnight, he did not stutter anymore, and today Luca is a very talkative little boy! " Alex, mother of Luca, 4 years old.
