Facing children's mispronunciation

In ordinary life, many people have times when they speak too fast because they are excited or angry when the sound coming out of their mouths is more or less inaudible and the pronunciation of some words is not very clear. But this is not a language problem, just an occasional condition.

But when it comes to children, mispronunciation is a cause of alarm for parents. It's not just an occasional problem, it's probably due to some mispronunciation habits and is a well-known language disorder in the medical field.

Study

There are many reasons for children's mispronunciation, such as cleft palate, short tongue tie, tongue malformation, abnormal development of the uvula, hearing impairment net, and other organic factors, as well as developmental diseases such as developmental delay, mental retardation, autism, and poor language environment and insufficient language education that cause mispronunciation.

Every parent wants their baby to have a fluent language, which requires not only sound brain development and healthy phonological organs but also scientific and timely guidance and education from parents. We are always saying that work depends on professional skills and cannot rely on face value and clever tongue. However, it cannot be denied that fluent and grammatical language does make a very good impression on interviewers and colleagues.

Happily, with the spread of scientific parenting and the increase in people's level of education, many parents have developed a conditioned reflex to not only seek medical attention for their child's speech impediment but also to have speech correction. As a language agency, this is something we would very much like to see.

But after that, the parents leave all the work to the remedial teachers, and they are left to their own devices, taking their child to and from class and leaving the rest behind. That's what we don't want to see.

In comedy, the phrase "three parts comic, seven parts hilarious" means that on stage, the comic actor is more important than the comic. Similarly, correctional institutions are equivalent to comic actors, we are responsible for all the correctional skills, while parents play the role of the cupping actor, although the workload is not large, each piece of work plays a role in the transition. Parents have more energy than you can imagine.

So, what should parents do at home after their children's classes to make their babies recover better?

1, more communication, in front of the child as a chatterbox

Many times, children themselves are not able to notice that their pronunciation is different from others, and parents who are always correcting their children's mistakes are likely to cause resentment. At this time, the best way for parents is actually to be a chatterbox, something to say a few words to the child, it is important to note that the words must be meaningful.

For example, when cooking, the mother can say to the child "mommy is washing vegetables", "mommy is stir-frying vegetables", "mommy will get you a bowl", etc.; when crossing the road, you can also say to the child When crossing the street, you can also say to your child: "Stop at the red light, go at the green light" and "We have to obey the traffic rules". Parents should talk to their children about what they do, what they see, and what they think so that they can not only increase their children's language reserves but also enhance parent-child relationships.

2. Listen more and let your child express himself or herself

Many parents often make the mistake of interrupting to correct and criticize their children when they say the wrong thing. This has only one result: stuttering may come to the door. Children are naturally curious, especially when they first learn to speak and keep talking every day, so it's not too late for parents to let their children talk as much as they want and correct them when they finish.

Another point is to let the child say what he or she wants, parents can not be the "model pacesetter" who "points to the east and not the west". When a child wants something, he or she may not be able to say the name of the item, may mispronounce it, or say the wrong name, and then the parent should tell the child the correct way to call it while bringing it to the child.

Parents must listen more and talk more during the speech correction period. Parents listen more to encourage their children to talk more and talk more to increase their children's language reserve.
