Just wanted to share the advice my daughter's new neurologist gave her: When a kid asks her why she tics, she responds, "It's an involuntary movement." The neurologist says this works great for younger kids (my daughter is 8) 'cause other kids don't usually know what "involuntary" means and won't be likely to ask for clarification. They're most likely just to say, "Oh, ok" and leave the issue alone. My daughter has learned what it means and practices it constantly, so she can get the pronunciation and inflection just right. It's gonna be great when some kid actually asks her! :-)
