I am just looking for some more info about my stepson rocking back & forth. He has done this for as long as I've known him, since he was 2 (he's 7 now). He rocks back & forth on the couch & when we're driving in the car. Most of the time he also sings, hums, or just makes random noises while doing it. He doesn't do it softly often, mostly at "medium-speed", but sometimes he will do it so hard the couch will bang against the wall & it just sounds like it hurts!
In the past I never said anything & tried to ignore it, w/ the occasional "can you please stop?" I figured he would "grow out of it" but that hasn't happened yet. Neither my hubby or SS's mom seem to be bothered by it, but I really am! Also, I'm pregnant now & am worried that in the future my child will start mimicing him & start doing this all the time too. Am I over-reacting? Should I say something or keep ignoring? Not sure how to handle this. Thanks!
