He is 10 years old and I am concerned about his behaviour.
Being his sister, I know “him”. However, there are times when he isn’t behaving like himself. He makes these ridiculous noises that you’d expect a toddler or even an animal to make!
He is only 10 years old but he knows how to talk down to and patronise adults, as if there is an adult in his mind! He gets a look in his eyes that creep me out and stare me down.
Anyway, today he got home from school and was making these noises. Nothing my mum said to him about stopping would get through to him.
At the dinner table, he kept acting really daft. I told him to stop being an idiot and my mum shouted at him too. Then he said “Yeah, you tell him!” .
This made me shiver… why was he talking as if there is another person in his body?
Maybe he is only joking around but he won’t snap out of it! He is like a completely different person sometimes. I don’t like the other person but he is my brother so I love him unconditionally.
I used to do ■■■■ like that all the time because it was just my personality. Kids that age make weird noises all the time. It’s the age. Yeah you tell him it’s a common phrase kids use when they’re being yelled at and don’t care. Like yeah, yell at me, see what good that’ll do!
I have Tourette’s/OCD that started when I was a kid, and it made me make weird noises all the time. It annoyed my family, but I couldn’t stop because it was compulsive. Now, through neurofeedback, I have mostly stopped. I only make weird noises when I’m very stressed out now.
