when do they grow out of it? My DS is 8, nearly 9 and his silly behaviour seems to be getting worse not better. Not quite sure how to describe the silliness, but generally using silly voices, pretending to be younger etc. Its not all the time, he can be sensible too!
Is this normal, his peers don't seem to do it or maybe I just don't see that.
What's the best way to handle it - I say 'don't be silly you're a big boy now' or just ignore it, and praise the sensible behaviour.
