My mother likes to pick up the wrongly pronounced children’s words and, communicating with the child, then says them only in this form.
Of course, this habit is explained by a reverent attitude to everything that their beloved grandchildren do. But, as it turned out, it is fraught with the fact that children remember the wrong option, and then to uproot it from the vocabulary is not so easy.
Grandma Cocklet Epic
For several years I tried to wean my daughter to speak Cocklet instead of a cutlet. It was only relatively recently that I finally stopped hearing this word, which periodically brought me to white heat.
I already wrote in one topic that because of allergies I had to pick up my daughter from the garden. Up to three years, I sat with her at home, and then went back to work, and every morning I drove the child to my mom for the whole day. And from her grandmother, Zhenya picked up this terrible word. Moreover, in this case, the grandmother knows how to, but for fun, she said so. And since with Zhenya she is always in high spirits, she could only get Cocklet and not otherwise.
For 2 or 3 years, I corrected Zhenya all the time, but the cutlet did not fit my daughter’s head. I read that when correcting children, one should not repeat the wrong variant after them, but speak only the normative one. Did not help.
When Zhenya learned to read and write, I wrote this word, underlined T, she read it by letter. I even showed that a cat hid in the word so that there was a catchy picture-hint.
Despite all my efforts and tricks, in this case only one method came up – time heals. Fortunately, the cat still returned to the patty.
My mother abused other words that did not take root in my daughter’s speech: puzzle instead of puzzle, pelmeni (with hard l) instead of dumplings. But besides, my parents are already unintentionally, but simply unknowingly, used to say go to bed and ring. These parasites daughter also sheltered.
My husband and I were so stigmatized to lie in shame that Zhenya now even corrects us when we say to put. Now we have to explain that this is possible.
The wrong accent in the word she understood was picked up by the girlfriends in the yard. Every time I heard him from my child, I just spoke understood. We managed to get rid of this sticky stress. Now hearing on the street, as someone says loudly wrong, she straightens out loud.
Of speech troubles, perhaps, we have only to catch. It is considered colloquial, which is not so scary, but I still hear hearing. I hope that we will overcome him.
I noticed that the word stuck (to sleep) was stuck to my friends who gave birth to their long-awaited son 3 years ago. They do not care for their souls in their boy, perhaps they even indulge him, because they waited for a very long time, and his birth was not easy.
When they talked kuptsi-kuptsi (swim) and spun at the half-year-old baby, it sounded cute. But now the boy is already 3 years old, he speaks well and actively replenishes his vocabulary. He and my daughter repeats everything, even the teasers of the Repetition Fly that makes us all happy. I am afraid that soon the boy will grow up and his friends will suffer, weaning him to speak all these touching words. They should hint …
And you had to retrain your children to speak correctly?
