When my son is explaining something or asking questions or simply is talking he starts to fidget with his fingers. I sometimes hold his fingers, or ask him to slow down and look at me. This doesnt come easy for him.
Does any have a good suggestion on what can help him become aware
of this habbit? Thanks

Thanks Little Miss Cant Be Wrong :D
My son is 11 years old and he does make some eye contact with us but his teacher seems
to think that it's distracting to others and him. He is a healthy boy and does academically great but like I said he fidgets and doesnt alway realise he is doing it. I want to help him be aware of it. Im just not sure how. Peace

I am not really sure if this is a problem. It probably makes him more comfortable to talk. Does he ever make eye contact with you? How old is he? I think it probably just annoys you, but if he is doing ok, I am not sure I see anything wrong with that.
