    My son has started hyper ventilating

    My son is 8 yrs old and has started hyper ventilating. Mainly if he gets hurt badly or if his father is getting on to him. He does it to the point that his hands draw inward and he can not talk. Now my husband does not want to discpline him because he is afraid he will do that again. Is this normal or is it a sign of something else? What can we do to prevent it

    Here is an article I found that may help http://www.hopkinschildrens.org/tpl_rlinks_nav1up.aspx?id=2102

    I would do some more research and possibly set up an appt. with a really good, smart Child Psychologist.

    Take care!
