I have been enjoying reading reviews of The King's Speech, and hope to get to see the movie next week. In an interview with Tom Hooper, the director of the film, he said this about the movie:
"one of the key themes in the movie is how not to let scars, bullying and trauma from childhood to go unaddressed and define your entire life. That’s what this film is about."
That certainly is a good statement for parents and those who stutter. There will always be those who take advantage of any difference to turn it into something to tease about. We have to stop those people and we can't let the trauma from any teasing influence us the rest of our lives.
