First of all, this is very common. she is bright and learning to talk well and sometimes the words come out wrong. Now she does not know she is doing this. She is just so interested in everything, and excited and happy about communicating with you and others. Please DO NOT say slow down, take your time or anything else that calls to her attention how she is speaking. You will make her aware of it. And that is something you do not want to do.
Instead of saying, slow down, you should set aside time each day for her to interact with you. Do not call attention to how she talks, instead listen to what she says. this is very important, children that age need to be responded to. This is a busy age for parents, in most families, both parents work, and with cooking the meals, houseword, socializing, sometimes it is hard to set time aside for a quiet time with our children each day. but this is so important.
When my youngest daughter was three years old I had a chance for a job in another state. I took it thinking I would find a place for my two children after I settled there. I left my daughters with my mother and father, both Doctors
and took the job. Called home every chance I got. One day my youngest daughter could not put two words together. I quit my job and drove all night to get back home. Now my mother and father were both saying, now slow down, start over, to my three year old. I took the children home with me, and just loved them and listened to what they had to say, especially not how they said it. In three weeks she was speaking with no hesitation.
She graduated Summa *** Laud from U. of Il, and she now teaches blind children. I get to hear her speak on PBS radio and I am so proud of her, she is a superb public speaker. Just ease up on everything Sherri, and please do not call attention to her hesitation. Check to see if anything is causing stress in her life. Love her, and as she gains control over her speech hesitation will stop.
Please let me know how she does.
