You make this sound by using your tongue to make a sort of valve at the top of your mouth by having the sides of your tongue contact your palate or teeth. Then you push air through. This is an unvoiced sound, so you shouldn't feel a buzz or vibration on your adam's apple
Here are some simple activities you can do at home and in the car to practice this sound:
1. When you are driving around town with your child, look for carwashes and call it out when you see them.
2. Look around outside with your child and find a tree and a bush. Talk about how they are alike and different. Look for more bushes and call it out whenever you see one.
