Oh gosh, if you find out let me know please...haha. Seriously, my six year old STILL grinds his teeth when he sleeps and it drives me crazy! I asked the dentist about it a couple of years ago, and he said that it's not uncommon for children to grind their teeth when they are finding their bite. If it continues to be a problem and your little man starts wearing down his teeth then they can fit him for a mouth guard. For now, I wouldn't worry too much about it; just bring it up at his next appointment.
