Why do some people start stuttering

Written by Stephen Hill

The are many reasons why a person may develop a stutter, and I am going to explain a few of them in this article.

We learn to talk by observingrepparttar people around us. This happens from birth and when our vocal chords are fully formed we start to speak. If a member of our close family has a stuttering problem, there is a good chance that we could pick up their bad habits and also start to stutter. I have met many people who stutter, who inform me that somebody in their family also suffers with stuttering and for some reason it is normally their father.

Many parents have stated to me, that even though they do have a stutter, that they have always been able to speak fluently to and around their child. Unfortunately children listen to conversations when we least expect it (when we think they are in bed, for example) and are likely to hearrepparttar 149600 stutter at various time, like during a phone call.

How a parent reacts when their child first starts to stutter is very important. If they are calm and patient and do not over-react, there is a good chancerepparttar 149601 child won't panic and worry. Ifrepparttar 149602 parent reacts shocked and responds sharply, with words torepparttar 149603 effect of, get your words out boy, this can have a very damaging effect. The child is likely to panic and is more than likely to stutter again out of nerves and tension.
