Teasing

Help other kids who stutter by sending in your ideas. All you need to do is
email a sentence or two about any of the three statements below. Please send your first name and how old you are. Your ideas will be added to the home page. Maybe your good ideas will help some other kids! Maybe you will get an idea or two yourself from something someone else has said. Maybe you've been teased by being called a name. Maybe someone has even said, "You talk like Porky Pig!" Warner Brothers and Porky Pig have a poster for you to help show that there is nothing wrong with being different. You can even copy this "Top of the Tune Squad" Everyone's Unique and Th-th-that's Good Folks! poster, free, if you want to.

Maybe you'd like to be a graphic artist some day, too. It is a fun job. Why not try to draw your own picture of stuttering on your computer? Here is a big Art Gallery of Stuttering with drawings about stuttering by lots of kids and teens who stutter. Check the Stuttering Foundation website where kids have also sent drawings (and letters).
