Children are very delicate and they are very dependent on the people around them for all their needs. Their language also is very dependent on the people around them and the people who stay mostly around the child are the parents of the child. ]This is the reason for them to be very important for the language and the talking ability of the child. There are many children who are normal who suddenly start stammering. This article looks at all the possible reasons for the child to stammer.

There are many children who start stammering suddenly and they may seem to be at a loss for words. They try to say something, but the words do not come out. This is very characteristic of the stammering that occurs in children who are less than 5 years old. Most of the stammering stops as the child grows, but the role of the parents in decreasing the stammering is very high. The parents should make sure that the child is happy and confident. The child should also not be forced to learn things, but given the freedom to learn

1. Bilingual:

When the child is taught more than one language, then there is a chance for the child to start stammering. This cause of the stammering is because the child may suddenly be confused with the new words in another language causing the stammering.

2. Teaching too many things:

Teaching the child too many things with the hope that the child will learn all the things taught, is another reason for the child to start stammering. The child may not be able to grasp all the things that are taught and this may cause the child to start having a little stammering which over time can increase.

3. Fear:

Fear is another factor that causes the child to stammer. The child may be afraid of various things. These fears may be real ones or even imaginary ones. So the parents should make sure that the fear of the child is reduced adequately to make sure that the child stops stammering. The child should also be made to be more fearless.

4. Lack of confidence:

There may be children who lack the confidence due to various reasons. The reason may be that the parents or the care givers to the child may have made the child lose the confidence by scaring the child. This could be another reason for a child who was talking normally to suddenly start stammering.

5. No reason:

There may be some other causes for the stammering, but when there is no obvious reason for the stammering, then it is called as idiopathic stammering and this means that there seems to be no reason for the stammering in the child.

Most children who start stammering suddenly stop stammering in the first month, but if the stammering prolongs even after one month, it is better to get reassured by visiting a Pediatrician or a speech therapist who will be able to give advice on any necessary treatment for the child to control the stammering.
