The Monster Study
I agree that the "Monster Study" was not pleasant for those involved, but we need to be thankful for that study as one thing it did was prove that children can't be made to stutter. Since the things those kids went through did not make them stutter, we now know that parents don't cause stuttering in their children. Many parents second guess their parenting techniques whenever their child exhibits a problem and wonder it they are the cause. Although they did not cause their child to stutter, there are things they can do to help lessen the stuttering.
