Smile Re: 3 year old weird habit

it sounds like what is called a 'tic' i started like that when i was about 4 i ended up with full blown tourettes, i am definately not saying this is what your child has i just want to explain that i was told 'tics' usually happen with increased stress but mine often come when i am relaxing so you might worry that your child is stressed when there is a good chance that they are very happy. when i do my 'tics' i hate people to point it out as this just makes me self conscious and i do it even more. your child will probably grow out of this as most children do if not then just take it as part of them as a person they cant stop even if they try.
