My son started stuttering when he got really excited or nervous. I just wait patiently until he gets it out or if I now he is rushing and getting frustrated I ask him to stop for a second tell him he has all the time he needs to tell me what he wants. That usually gets him to slow down enough he stops. The doctor said it will stop when he gets older. He is 6 now and he does not do it very often. It does happen less the older he gets. But if it is a serious concern ask your child's doctor they can give you lots of information and can help you know if you should worry or not.
