  • My daughter couldn't say grandma for the longest time. When she would mispronounce it we would sound it out really slowly. One day we sat there for 30 minutes sounding out grandma and she finally got it.

  • Break it up and say it slowly. Whenever my son runs his words together I break it up and sound it out, make it sort of a "chant". He has a brother named Michael and sister named Becca - that middle "c" sound has been hard for him to get, so we work on that a lot. He can say it when he slows down, but when he gets excited he still leaves it out - he's 2 1/2.
