Managing Stress Will Help Control Stuttering All of us will experience situations that may cause us to become stressed or feel anxious. Stress is a normal function of everyday life. Only when it appears to take over our lives does it then become a problem. Everyone will have different reasons why a situation causes them pressure.

The voice box, also called larynx, is the part of the respiratory (breathing) tract which contain the vocal cords and these produce sound. The larynx is used for breathing, talking, or swallowing.

Coping with stammering can be emotionally challenging and a lonely fight. My first recognition of this was when my four year old son finally told us how miserable he was in his daycare setting because the other children had been picking on him about his stammering and speech impediment. The more he went to daycare, the worse he felt. What made it even worse was that he told my husband and me that he had tried to tell the daycare staff about the other children taunting him about his stammer (stutter) and they could not understand what he was trying to tell them.
