Yes, they can appear out of nowhere.
DS developed a mild stutter at 4 (still being treated at nearly 6) and has only very recently developed a couple of verbal tics.
I would definitely get it checked out.
elephaba, my son has a Canadian accent some of the time - mostly vowel heavy words like 'about' (he says it more like 'aboot'). There's no reason for it, but geeze it's funny. People constantly comment on it too
At least they are too young for people to call them pretentious lol. My sister calls him her little exchange student...
His 17 year old sister flew back to her Dad interstate yesterday, and he was really sad, so we had a special "Mum and son" day, playing games all morning. Then I got him a Happy Meal as a special treat. When his dad got home he was showing him the happy meal toy he got from "Burger King". Now for one, it's Hungry Jacks, for two, it was McDonalds, and for 3, he pronounced it "Brgr King". I have really got to do something about limiting time watching those youtube reviews when I'm doing housework....
