I already replied to this, but I was unable to add to it….

If a stutterer is mild, they most likely have little trouble…so they probably prefer to speak on their own…..

For the more troublesome cases……..is it right to wade AND WAIT through a person’s stutter almost forever GIVING THEM PERMISSION TO SUFFER AND NOT HELP THEM BY COMPLETING words and sentence??

They know what they want to say…and they almost can say it…but they simply can’t say it. Are you one to be cruel and let them hurt themselves by letting them stutter a thunderstorm and not help them…..??

Being “patient” for a terrible stutter problem is sort of like giving them permission to put themselves through hell. But for mild cases, more power to ya!
