My son will go excusemeexcusemeexcuseme over and over really fast to get my (or the person I'm talking to) attention. I've tried telling him to just say it once, but he'll immediately say it one time,and then do the same thing next time we start talking.
He does it purposely when I'm talking to someone and he wants the attention on him. He doesn't do it ALL the time but he does it enough that I've started to notice it.
I've tried telling him to wait until there is a pause in the conversation but it usually only lasts so long, or to say excuse me just once and if he actually has something to say.
He'll go excuse me, and you're like yes? and then he just goes um... I have to tell you something, and you're like yes what is it? And he has nothing to say, or just randomly starts saying weird stuff or w/e because he can't actually think of what he should say.
Oh and I give him plenty of attention and talk to him lots, it's also not just long conversations, it's like you'll try to say a few things and he's automatically going EXCUSEMEEXCUSEMEEXCUSEME. It's just getting a bit frustrating and I'm trying to think of a good way to get him to stop. I've tried redirecting him to something else but he's not always easily distractible.
