My 10yo son has developed a sort of tic over the past few months. I am not sure if it's 'normal' and therefore ignored, or potentially an early sign of something else - eg tourettes.
when he does it - we have been making him aware and gently encouraging him to stop - but am worried this is the wrong thing.
when he is on the PC (with headphones on), or concentrating or something he makes a sound in his throat a cross between a hum and a swallow. he sometimes does it when in bed going off to sleep.
My partner says he had tics when he was the same age and grew out of them and not worry. I am concerned it could be tourettes - not sure what else. any experience/advice/tips?
Tics or something else
