My youngest has been under extra stress this year. She was diagnosised with some learning issues and we have done some more intensive work with her to help her overcome these extra challenges. Her parents have had some relationship issues, there was a death in the extended family, her mom was injured, her sister left for "real school," when before she was home with this sister, among other real life stresses. Well she has developed a tick. The kind where she has a weird body movement that she is not aware of and seems to not be in control of when it happens. She sort of moves her neck and head oddly, and does not reailize it. I pointed it out, asked if she has a pain in her neck? Is she stretching? She does not notice it, says she is not doing it. I am doing my best to just ignore it mostly now and see if it clears up when the stress levels even out around here. Yet, how long should it go on, before I should be making more a big deal out of it? She was sort of stressed having to go to the Phy clinic and so she does not want to run back in there but maybe she needs it if she is developing a weird involuntary movement. It could clear up on it's own. My middle child had a short time of a stutter. It worked out on it's own as her brain caught up with her language. Yet....I worried crazy then she might have it forever. I feel the same about the neck thing with her sister.
