Excellently put Sachin! Hope the walk to the beach turns out to be a rewarding one - for both of you.

No Pam, I’ve never had another person who stutters make fun of me either. I was curious about others though... I'm sorry to hear adults still continue to make fun of you. My only experiences of being made fun of were as a child, but I forgave them also. Kids don't really understand. Thanks for the comment.
Thanks Pam! :-)

Pam, Yes! Saying "and" is even more powerful and effective. Thanks for your contribution.

Pam, I agree that imagining that we don't stutter is not a good idea. I was talking more about things like imagining being assertive, confident, going into a speaking situation with courage etc.
Pam it serves me right for opening my big mouth for everyone to see. :-) But you're right. England did play really badly. We had more possession of the ball. We had more shots on goal. But we still couldn’t get the second goal in. Well done United States! :-)

It sure is Pam. It can be the key difference between whether we believe in ourselves to be able to do something, or not.

Absolutely. The way a person asks themselves a question can make all the difference. Continuously asking "Why" is a sure way to remain in victim mode. But, change this to "How" as you pointed out brings choices and enables a person to begin to look for solutions. Thanks for the comment.
Pam thanks for your comment. That's my gripe about the research and therapy experts. You can sit in a conference for 6 hours listening to these individuals go one about what they discovered in their studies. This is great, and needs to continue to advance knowledge. However, what practical advice is provided to people who stutter on actually dealing with stuttering?
Pam, what could we call it!?
I agree 100% with you. Thanks for the comment.
Hey Pam, yes I'll definitely have listen. Congratulations on your new podcast show. You're covering a very important topic in women who stutter, an area which needs more awareness and understanding. Well done and thanks for your efforts.

Turkey was great Pam. I was there on holiday with two of my best mates. The weather was fantastic - hot during the day and cool in the evening. We enjoyed the food and the night life was brilliant. The local people were interesting. It was fun trying to communicate with them! Hisaronu was a bit too touristy for my liking. I still recommend it though!
Thanks Pam.

Thanks Pam!

I agree Sachin. Believing it all the time is the biggest challenge of all. But just imagine being able to do this... true liberation.

Happy New Decade to you too Sachin!! I like your attitude - "life never gives up on us".
Hey Tom, Yep, I can believe that! Hope you're doing well :-) Cheers, Hiten
Namaste Micha! Thanks for your questions. Please see my responses below: 1. I never met her in person. It was just e-mails and chatting on the phone. I saw her picture though. 2. Do you mean if I openly talked about stuttering with the girl? If so, the answer is no. 3. Nope, I haven't talked to her mum. I agree that it's great to raise awareness about stuttering. However, I suspect the mum was not in position where she was ready to be informed about stuttering. I don't think this was the issue. It was her ego getting a bashing more than anything else. I can't be sure, of course. But that's what I suspect. Happy New Year to you too! Cheers, Hiten
Pam, a couple of years ago I was at a workshop. Each one of us had to introduce ourselves. From the moment, this one guy started to speak, I knew he stammered. His speech blocks were obvious to me, with some repetitions when he started his sentences. I don't think anybody else noticed. During the break I told him I stammered and he told me he did too... I think the brains of covert stammerers have some kind of special connection going on!

Pam, what I wrote above relates to the experiences I had for many years. But recently I've noticed that in one or two conversations I've been substituting words... something which I hadn't done for a few years now. So there is still work to do...

Pam, this is so true. People just have too much going on with their own lives.
Toggle Commented Nov 17, 2009 on Learning To Live in Our Own Bodies at Stuttering Hub
Pam, yep, acceptance is a key aspect. With it comes so much freedom. Until then, it's just resistance and fight, which creates even more negativity.
Hi Erica, I think your attitude is great and will help your son tremendously. I hope other parents reading this, take it on board too! I completely agree when you... Stuttering can be seen like any other challenge in life. Everyone whether they stutter or not, have their own difficulties. It is up to each one of us, to decide whether we will take responsibility for our lives and look for opportunities to grow and develop, or whether we will blame everything around us for our problems, and never do anything about it ourselves. I think helping young kids empower themselves, particularly if they stammer is a great start. Your attitude will rub off onto your son. Wishing you both the best!
