Q.

My 2 yr old stuttering

Hi doc

I''m so worried! My daughter is 2 and a half years old. She use to say " wat maak jy"  but now for the last 2 weeks she says something like " w..w...w....w..wat doen jy"  this happens with all her words. Should I be worried? What can I do? I wrote a message to the teacher. I''m just scared something is wrong at the school, or maybe I treating her wrong? I just don''t know

Advice would be appreciated

Stuttering at this age is very common and usually does not last for too long. In most cases no cause is found.Get your little girl to blow bubbles often as this often helps a lot. If she continues to stutter after another 3 months it would be best to take her to see a speech therapist.
