  • Normal. All of my kids have done it at some point, my 15 yr old brother still does it sometimes.

  • Yes, it's normal. My son does that too, and I was told that I did it a lot when I was little too. The doctor may be some concerns if they do it all or most of the time, but I think it's quite normal to do it a little bit here and there throughout the day.

  • As others have said, totally normal. I even catch myself doing it, but I don't know why I do, lol.

  • My oldest was the only one of my children to walk like that. Her legs are some of the strongest for a 6 year old.

  • all i know is it is not good for their tendens it can really mess the kids feet up bad

  • my sister is a pediatrician. if he does it some of the time it's okay but if he doesnt stop u might need to tell the doctor because his tendon cords could be too tight and they would have to operate to fix it.
