My six year old by has been making very annoying hacking noises a few times a day for the past year. His fifteen year old uncle does the same thing and I am sure he picked it up from him. I am also pretty sure that neither of them have any wrong with them. I can't tell the uncle what to do. I have been telling my son to stop since he started. Usually when I hear him doing I ask him to stop. He does it again and I get a little louder. How do I get him to stop? The only thing I can think of is probably insane and that is making him wear a rubber band and flicking him with it when I hear that. I don't even smack him!
The noise is a throat scratchy, clearing noise but there is nothing to clear. It kind of goes up his nose too--the noise.
