Hai... Its quite common for some kids to do this...especially whole concentrating. Its just a habit. No need for you to panic... Just kindly yell him that its not good & you don't like it. Do not reprimand. He will get better soon... Happy to help anytime. If you are happy with my reply, kindly rate it.
