"Dearest Tanya, We don't know each other, but you helped me more than you can ever imagine. I have a seven year old daughter. Up until last summer, she could not make the "r" sound. I tried everything. I read articles on what to do ,when to worry, just let it go, etc.. Then one night I stubbled upon your article Tackling Trouble with R. That very night, I asked my daughter to make the L sound. She did. Then she rolled her tongue towards the back of her mouth, as your article suggested. Boom! The R problem was solved. I couldn't believe it. My daughter couldn't believe it. It made SOO much sense to her. So many other suggestions from other articles were terribly confusing and so incredibly complicated. Your words made so much sense. Though I never put pressure on her or made her feel worried about the R, as a mom I was really concerned. Her classmates were starting to noticing it and I knew it was just a matter of time before some students would become rude about it. Since the night I read your article, R is not a problem in our house. I felt such a huge sense of relief. As my daughter prepares for second grade this year, I know she is going in feeling confident and ready to tackle the year. I spent some time trying to find the article that saved us just so I could thank you for all you did for my little girl. We appreciate you so very much!" Sarah W.
