Q.

Stuterring

My son is now 2 1/2 years old. He just a few days ago, starting stuterring when he talks. It is worrying us a little, but are not sure if it maybe because he is trying to talk to quickly, or if it is something else. What should we do.?

Paediatrician

This is very common at this age and usually is just a passing problem.Give him some time and if he is still stuttering at 3 years then he should see a speech therapist.
