Hello, just a quick question! my step son is 4 and has a serious studdering problem. I've brought it to his fathers attention but he seems to think its just a phase. I'm worried its not a phase because its getting worse and worse as he gets older. I'm not sure what causes this problem but from wat i do know is that kids who are young and expeirence something traumatic it can bring on a nervous studder
I've told his father that he should talk to his ex about it so his son can be seen by a doctor or speech therapist. To be honest its very frustrating to me because i cannot ignore that he's having problems talking. Neither of his parents seem to concerned... but when i called someone to ask questions about the problem they said he shoulx probably be evaluated so they can figire out wats causing his studdering. i just need some advice as to how i should bring thos up to my step sons mother with out her feeling. like I'm stepping on her toes?! i just don't want to come off like I'm being mean about it.. my fiance refuses to talk to his ex cuz he says she wouldn't do anythong about it anyway.. so should i be concerrndd!
