  • When she stutters tell her to calm down and say it again. I used to do that when I was little because I would get to excited and talk to fast and because of that i would stutter. My mom always told me to stop slow down and say it again.

  • Stop worrying. I think she does it more because she has more exciting things nowadays and probably more friends and she gets excited because she wants to tell you everything to you. But her brain moves faster than her tongue. When she does it, tell her to calm down and repeat what she said because you can't understand what did she say. She is in that age when the children actually start to understand the world around them and start to enjoy using the language to make the world understand them. And it is so exciting. She is gonna be fine. But if you are worried than ask her pediatrician:)

  • If you want to make sure there isn't a problem, take her to a speech Therapist. Better to catch it when she's young before kids start making fun of her and cause a whole lot of unnecessary pain... Hope this helps...
