Currently, there is interest in the speech issue of stuttering, so I’m reposting this earlier blog post.
Many pressures such as unrealistic expectations, fear, hardness, or other oppressive treatment can cause off-balanced behavior in children that leaves them feeling unsure, unsteady, and undone so that they do not feel complete in their true selves. Each person is born with a temperament, likes, dislikes, and more, and sometimes the caregivers are unable to handle the child’s way of being. Even caregivers who truly care.
As a child navigates the life that is presented to him or her by caregivers and other people, patterns are acquired. Patterns of movement, of speech, of viewing, and of hold-approach develop that are specific to the child. Some patterns are idiosyncratic and some are socially reasonable. The socially reasonable behavior provides easier access to others. Idiosyncratic behavior confounds. The more a child behaves in socially confounding ways, the more the child self-torments and self-deplores because of the reactions of others to the idiosyncratic ways.
Stuttering is one example of idiosyncratic behavior.
Throughout the stages of life, there is possibility of stopping idiosyncratic behavior. The age is not important, but the desire is. There are many proposed therapies for the phenomenon of stuttering. The therapies that include relaxation, breathing guidance, self-acceptance, and singing are the therapies that are most successful.
