My son will be 5 in March and still has troubles with his Ls and Rs. I didn't even realize it was wrong until my husband's dad made fun of him. I thought it was perfectly normal for children to have problems with speech at this age. Now, I am not so sure. Does your 4 year old have any speech impediments? How do you try to fix it?
My daughters name is Lily and my son pronounces it "Ye ye". I stop him and show him how I say it. I say it really slow so he can see my tongue touch the back of my teeth and how my mouth forms to say the word. If I slow him down and remind him to say it right, he tries and it sounds much better, but still not as well as it could be. That is the only thing I know to do..slow him down and have him repeat it until he says it correctly. He gets frustrated with me and himself, though. Any other ideas or tips on how to fix it?
