  • A tic perhaps? Tourettes maybe. Allergies

  • diresticly-I am not familiar with this word. It could be so many different things from allergies like the above person said, maybe poor eyesight, dry eyes, who knows. You will have to ask him more about it and then maybe schedule some an appointment with his pediatrician.

  • Drastically, like overly dramatized, that is what I figured you mean but was not sure if it was just a word that I had never heard. And that sounds like the best course of action.

  • When a kid becomes aware of it, they'll blink weird for a while. Or when they see someone winking, they'll try and try and try. I'll bet you anything that your son is either becoming aware that he's blinking, or he's trying to wink. Ignore it and he'll quit. ALL of my kids did the same thing between the ages of 2 & 5.

  • My almost 4 year old has been doing this too and I took her to the doctor who has referred me to a specialist.
