My son just turned 5 a couple weeks ago. Ever since he has been raising his eyebrows when he talks or sometimes when he watches tv. I ask him why hes doing it and sometimes he say i dont know my eyes just do it and others he says i like doing it. Im not sure if its a fase or what is going on lol. But im a worry wort so here i am asking for advice. Has anyone dealt with this?

Lmao you are worried because your 5 year old has learned how to raise his eyebrows? What is there to be worried about? Its just a phase. Kids learn all types of crap and repeat it over and over until it gets old

he probably jtsu learned how to do it. he'll get bored of it eventually.
my DD is 6 and when she started school she kept making this weird face, almost like it was a twitch. i thought it was a sign of soemthing wrong, but then DD told me a friend at school does it. we ignored it and she stopped doing it.

I think it's because five year olds are excited about everything they're saying. lol My son did it too, he still does some times.
