What is the best way to support your child who stutters?

Do Not Make It a Taboo

Your child may feel that their stuttering is an unmentionable topic. Parents can end this feeling by using the most direct approach. Give plenty of emotional support when your child is having a hard time. You may want to say something to them like:

"That was really hard to say, wasn't it?"


"I sometimes have trouble saying that, too!"
