Read these words:

bar
car
far
jar

"What's the first letter in that first one son?"
"B."
"Good job! And what does 'B' sound like?"
"Buh."
"Excellent! Now, the other two letters sound like, 'AAARRR' so what is the word?"
"Truck."
"Ok, no. 'Buh-AAARRR'."
"Truck."
"Not quite. The word is 'bar.'"
"Bar."
"Perfect. Now, if that word is 'bar' what's the word below it?"
"Truck."
"No, what letter is at the beginning of the word?"
"C."
"Great! And what sound does 'C' make?"
"Cuh."
"Fantastic! Now, knowing the the word above is 'BUH-AAARRR' what would this word be?"
"Truck."
"Ok, no. Don't say truck again. Ever. What sound does 'C' make?"
"Cuh."
"Excellent. And if B.A.R is bar, then C.A.R is what?"
"Truck."

*sigh*

....it just went downhill from there.

Truck-aarr would be my kids response.

Ok so this one is not related to reading but, our youngest is pronouncing Milk as "boat"(Don't know where it comes from). So we try to work on the different parts. Say Mmmm, he says mmmm. Say ill, he says ill. Say k, he says k. We do it again faster say mmm ill k, he says mmm ill k. Say Milk, "boat".

Kids are great!

Garrett's a Texas boy, the word 'Truck', as well as other items native and prevalent in Texas somehow made its genetic imprint on your boy....What do you expect?
Why should he waste time learning 'Car' when all the boy wants is a cool, tough, chick-grabbin truck?

...be glad he doesn't want a pink sunfire...or worse: a white beetle with black fenders and a gay-ass mock-badge on each door. If he starts liking those, its time for some Soma and re-training.

trucks grab chicks? Really? The only thing I've seen big trucks pick up are those ditzy hick-sluts such as in Dukes of Hazzard.

That's because you live in Alabama. Which is close to Mississippi.

As always, my point is, you have no idea what you're saying.
