    The first means effective ways [strategies] to help someone cope [deal] with problems.

    stunted means failure to grow in a normal fashion. Calves whose mothers have a normal supply of milk will experience normal growth. A calf whose mother has a poor supply of milk will be stunted.

    There may be other meanings.

    Attention: I'm not a teacher.

    Hi Hanga,

    stunted = rudimentary, obsolete, dwarfed

    rudimentary = imperfectly or incomplectly developed
    embrionic: a rudimentary beak

    pertaining to something either vestigial or embrionic

    vestigial = (biology) not fully developed in mature animal

    obsolete = not longer in use

    dwarft = an abnormally small person, animal or plant
    to dwarft = to check the natural growth of development of, stunt

    "The oaks were dwarfted from lack of moisture."

    Regards.

    V.
