    Default Advice needed- Stuttering

    Our DS has developed a significant stutter. It started around Dec/Jan when things were a bit hectic. My ex-husband and I had been separated awhile but we were fighting like crazy. In February he was arrested and one of his bail conditions was to have no contact with myself or the children. Within one week the stutter was gone and I only remember him stuttering once in the three months. My ex was finally able to see his children again this month and the stuttering is back and worse than ever.

    Has anyone experienced anything like this?
    Not seeing his father isn't an option but how can I help my son overcome the stuttering. He doesn't seem overly bothered by it. Sometimes when he gets really stuck he will poke out his tongue and blow a raspberry and then continue talking.

    Other than the stuttering he seems completely fine, healthy and happy and always asks to go to his dads.

    My step son has a similar issue but he comes to us from his mother stuttering bad. When I see he is really stuck I tell him to stop thing and try again. This works 9 times out if 10. He gets spoken over a lot at his mums so we try and stop anyone else talking until he can say what he needs to
