5 Guidelines to Help Children Overcome Their Hesitation to Speak


Children are innocent and showing a little anger from adults can lead to fear and anxiety, especially in children who are more sensitive. This fear takes root, they start to hesitate while doing anything. Especially children who are just learning to speak are most affected by this fear and their language does not support them in uttering words.

No. 1 Conversation with children

when talking to children, do not use words like children and choose simple words and talk to them as if you are talking to an adult so that they talk to you in the same way. Children's ability to speak can be affected and children can adopt accents that are not good for them.

No. 2 Ask the children questions

Ask the children daily questions about their various issues and listen carefully to their answers and if they are wrong, correct them gently and ask your questions as if they were asking an adult.

No. 3 Children's Stories

Young children usually learn more from stories and if parents tell them stories of good results, they will remember them and words will be added to their vocabulary. After telling your story, ask the child questions about the story so that you know how attentive he or she is.


No. 4 Listening to children

When young children tell you something, listen to it carefully and don't ignore it or interrupt them, otherwise they will start interrupting what will affect their behavior.

No. 5 Positive conversation with children

When talking to children, do not say negative things and always talk to them positively because they are all learning and they will remember any wrong thing of yours very quickly and then return it to you. But remember not to make fun of them or make fun of any of their actions, otherwise they may be reluctant to come in front of you and do anything.
