For those who might enjoy seeing these, I am posting the quotes I have collected over the years on this page http://quotescollectedovertheyears.blogspot.com/

The need to share your feelings

Those who stutter find that it helps to be able to talk with others who also stutter. Being part of a support group of understanding people allows you to vent your feelings and frustrations as well as to gain a feeling of self-worth when you find out you are not the only one who stutters and that others have "made it" with the same thing. Young children find it easier to express their feelings, sometimes, by drawing pictures or writing letters to someone they don't know, especially if it is hard to talk about their stuttering. The Stuttering Foundation of America devotes a page of their web site and part of their newsletter to space for young children to share with others. Click on "Kids Page" on the link list to the right to see the web page. From the home page, you can download the most recent newsletter.
