Hi doctor,

My son, who is 7, pulls his shirt constantly. He keeps his face that he does not realize what he is doing. Should I be concerned?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • This seems to be an attention seeking behavior by your child. It occurs in those families where both parents are working.
  • If your child does not have any other symptoms like convulsions, altered sensorium and delayed milestones, then there is probably no brain involvement.
  • If this behavior of the child continues or increases in nature, then you might have to visit a child psychiatrist.
  • Till then, spend more time with the child. Make sure that he is not getting any problems at school. If so, help him out with his problems.
  • Tender loving care of such children usually results in subsiding of these symptoms over a certain period of time. If not, then please see a child psychiatrist.
