    Do you know the pains of stammering?

    I have occasionally witnessed people laughing at those who stammer.

    Although I was not a chronic stammerer, from time to time, when I'm excited, I tend to stammer.  I take a deep breath, slow down, and it seems to work.  And I pity individuals who take joy in others harships.

    I used to stammer in my pre-teen years. What I was told was to take a breath, think about what I wanted to say, and then say it. Some self-control is needed. I sometimes find myself stuttering, but that's only when I don't think I can get a word in on conversations. The trick is to hold back - wait and then try again.

      I too had one in my youth but gradually learnt to control it. The movie "The King's Speech" reminded me of this recently. I have a cousin whose stammer has totally refused to subside. He literally stomps to force words out. Any remedy here?

      Tell him to slow down and gather his thoughts. Could be he hasn't worked out in his mind what he wants to say, and just wants to be able to say anything.

    The pains of stammering also known as stuttering can be devastating to young children, that can carry over to adulthood. It is an inability of the muscles used in forming sentences, and is usually genetic, and is prevalent in boys more so than girls.It is triggered many times by anxiety..sometimes speech theraphy is beneficial, but not necessarily.
    This has nothing to do with IQ or hindering educational level..went to Medical School with a guy who had this condition, put himself through school, singing and playing guitar...(.never stuttered when he sang..) became a very prominent thing to remember is it is not polite to correct or make fun of anyone !

      Hi kj force,
      I like your response. Thanks for elaborating to a deeper extent. It can be rather touchy to the afflicted. As shiningirisheyes and Alancaster149 say, slowing down seems to work in many occasions.
