Helping the Child Who Stutters

Parents must be good talkers, listeners

The Stuttering Foundation of America has some advice for parents of a child who stutters.

First, it's important to be a good talker and listener. When talking to your child, speak slowly and pause frequently. And when listening, pay attention to the content, not the stuttering, and make sure your facial expressions show that. Most important, make sure your child knows you love him just the way he is.

The foundation says more than 3 million Americans stutter.
