Whe Wells Wea Whells By The Wea W(h)ore
My son has an interesting speech thang going on. He does not say an "S" if it is at the beginning of a word. Sissy=Wissy See=Wee But something plural? He totally says the ending "S." I try to help him out a little by prompting him to say a really long ssssssss. "Baby J, say sssssssissy." And what does he do? He says... sssssssss wissy.

    My middle child went through a stage where she couldn't pronounce "l" and "k" was pronounced as "t". When the cat had kittens, she greeted everyone at the door with "Wanna see Fuffy"s titties?" It did get some interesting reactions from our visitors.

    Kids saying words in some very entertaining ways.

    What often happens though, is that other family members pick up on it, and even the child may stop saying it that way, the adult continues to say it the child's way.

    I know this from experience.

    My son, who is my youngest had a similar problem. It's getting better every year. He went through a speech program at school and I was told that he would most likely grow out of it..
    He would tend to leave the "T" out of words..he'd say Fruck instead of Truck..sometimes however it would sound more like Fuck..Is funny when you would hear it in a sentence..Did you see that red fuck going down the road? :D

    My son now 13 used to have a problem pronouncing his f's. He'd say Sish instead of Fish. I'd say to him "Say fa-fa-fish and he'd say fa-fa-sish!" He finally grew out of it. My daughter has been going to a speech therapist for over 6 months now for a speech delay. She's doing much better.

    Speech therapist chiming in...

    That's totally common. A child can physically make the sound, but they have it in their little heads that "sissy" is "wissy". I bet he learns new "s" words fine, but has trouble pronouncing words he knew already.

    If he's 4, he should be understandable 75-100% of the time. If it's less than that, or if you're concerned, call your local school and find out how you can have Baby J evaluated. He's got a remarkable birth history...that may affect kids in subtle ways on a longer term basis.

    Good luck!!!

    my lil sis used to call flowers, showers. it took a while (and a couple of baths) for us to figure out what was she going on about.

    It makes sense me. I used to say skelington instead of skeleton.

    My Mother (87) has a child (me) with the same problem. He has false teeth, I prefer to call them replacement teeth, but anyway....he avoids words that start with S.....like the plague.
    LLLOOOLLL we all need to laugh.....and it sobers us to think....."I was once young, I wonder what my Mom shared about me????"
    You know, I think I'll quiz her on that one. Later
