Proud of His Stutter

Nate has about 5 videos he has been wanting to make about stuttering, but after another comment today from someone who said that Nate would probably be happy/ier if he didn't  stutter -- he handed me the Flip and said "Mom, we need to make a video and clear this up!"

So, here it is --



I'd like to add that I am so very proud of him and his attitude towards his stutter.  I know that many people still won't understand, but his attitude is about accepting himself just as he is -- stutter and all.  That doesn't mean that he doesn't struggle, or work hard to be more fluent, but he likes who he is and who he is happens to stutter.

If you want more information about stuttering, I suggest you visit www.westutter.org and the www.stutteringfoundation.org.  You can also visit YouTube and check out some of Nate's other videos about stuttering.
