Until now we were thinking that a child's fear e.g. for darkness or water was normal. Now things are changing. The child must be able to rationalize their fears. Otherwise, the causes must be identified in our own behaviors. We shall assign the child initiatives, ask him to help us with the housework and shopping from the super market , etc. The trust we will show him will benefit him significantly. Also we must check our own fears and we certainly do not terrorize our child by presenting risks that surround him. The overprotected child is never more secure.
How do I know if my child is stuttering?
To receive a diagnosis of developmental stuttering should occur the following :

• As a result of disordered speech, the child -in some cases- avoid certain situations , words , faces .
• Have identified behaviors that accompany the difficulty rate of speech as twitching of the face or the body , loss of contact with the eyes , loss of control of the rate of breathing.
• Provide the standard beginning and course of the disorder in the development process.
