You are welcome.Stuttering in children of this age is very common and the good news is that with most children stuttering does not last long.The cause for stuttering in this age group is usually unknown.Your little boy seems to be doing well and is clever at pre-school.It will help him if you get him blow bubbles as often as possible,but at least 3 times a week.If he is still stuttering at 3 years he should be seen by a speech therapist.
