Hi Manisha, show your child how to roll the tongue and make a sound. Some sounds are made from throat (k, g, ch,q) and some from lips (p, m, w, v and so on) and some from the tip of the tongue (s, t, d, r, n and so on). While making the letter sound, one can identify whether it's a voiced sound or whispered sound by touching the throat (through vibrations). I. e those Sounds that cause vibration or buzz in the throat are voiced. Make your child feel it when you make the sound. Show the difference. In your child's case she has problem with voiced sounds. Read a lot of books. Make her read or say more words that have these consonants sounds. For e. g you can make her repeat these words - vrooooom, cuckoo or make a sound like a vehicle drrrrrrrrrrrrr.. Keep practicing. Most kids outgrow this problem by 6. If you don't find any improvement, check with her paediatrician to find if she needs any additional professional help. Hope this helps..

:) Please rectify your spellings before teaching your child ... Maybe she needs to learn the right spellings :)
