Parents Of Child With Speech Difficulty Get Advice From Rav Chaim Kanievsky  

2

A yungerman recently visited the home of Rav Chaim Kanievsky in Bnei Brak, together with his 4 year old son, saying that despite the boy’s age, he is still struggling with his speech.

Rav Chaim intuitively understood that the parents are excessively pressuring the child and that itself is causing the child to struggle and refrain from talking. With a warm smile, Rav Chaim humorously told the father, “Er halt shtark in shmiras hadibur” (he is being makpid on guarding his speech), and then gave the child a warm bracha.

Rav Chaim added: “In Sefer Chassidim, it’s brought down that when a person is created, it is decreed how many words he will speak. Angels escort the person wherever he goes, writing down everything that he says. Eventually, every person will have to give a din vecheshbon on everything that he ever uttered. When a person finishes saying all the words that were allocated for him, he passes away. With this, every person should be influenced to speak as much divrei Torah as possible and not dvarim bitaylim.”
