None of them did but I did as a kid and some times when I was in my 20's. It seemed to happen when I was the most stressed. I'm glad none of the kids do because of the teasing that they would get in school.

That can be caused by a lot of different things... I think it's more common when their mind is full of all kinds of ideas that they can't organize quickly in order to say what their thinking.  My son used to do it and repeating what he said was a way of holding his place as he was thinking of the exact word(s) he wanted to say next.  Otherwise, you might have to have him evaluated by a speech-language pathologist to find out what the root of the problem is.

My daughter does at times but she just turned three. Her speech therapist said it can happen when she acquiring new language skills. Hers really comes and goes and the more excited she'd get the worse it would get. We didnt bring attention to it or try to rush her. We'd just wait until she got her thoughts together.
