Child issues with excitment
Hi
My son is nearly 10 years old and from when he was a baby when he gets excited or just happy about something he squeezes his hand and reopens them continually and scrunches his eyes closed. His whole body can become stretched.  We thought at first this was just something he would grow out of.  Although he still does this now and its getting more frequent, and he also does this in his sleep.
Please can you help me under stand this as his friends have started to notice.
Thanks Diane

Any strong emotion elicits a variety of physical sensations/responses. This is a harmless, involunatry response to excitement. As your son matures neurologically you will notice that this reaction wanes. There is nothing to do about it and I certainly would not focus on it.
