It is...it is...it is... heard in in our home, again!
The eldest had a big stutter issue when she was about six, and she had to go through several years of speech therapy. All along I thought it was made worse by the divorce...
Stuttering has a huge emotional component, and as soon as there is a disruption in the normal flow of things, it does get worse!
But apparently there is a genetic link as well!
Our little one is also stuttering now. She gets stuck on the "I"s and "Us", and she repeats the first two or three words of a sentence.
We do not try to notice it at all!
I have to make people aware of it before they notice it!
Her teacher also said that she has not notice it!
But it is there!
Maybe I am too sensitive about it, and it is only a normal developmental stage?
Did your toddlers also go through a stuttering phase?
Do we need to take her to a speech therapist?
