Q: My son is 3.5yrs old. He speaks a few words. I have a lisping problem and want to know if he would also have the same lisping or any other speech problem.

Madhu (Bangalore, India)

A: Lisping is not hereditary so there is no need to worry. However, you should try not to lisp in front of him as he would learn the wrong pronunciation.
