Your Child Using His Words to Speak Clearly
Did you know that speaking clearly is a difficult task to master? There are almost 100 different muscles that we need to coordinate to form the words we use in everyday speech. So it's no wonder that when your child first began to speak, his words were muddled. In some cases, he may have had trouble with a particular letter, or, if he puts a phrase together, he may not be aware that you've said more than one word! Now, however, as he approaches four years old, those muscles are becoming more coordinated and his speech is becoming clearer. Clear enough, in fact, for even strangers to understand what he's saying (most of the time, anyway!).
