• Why does my grandson say I’m too close when I’m six feet away from him?


    Question:

    My 6-year-old grandson said I don’t need to be right up in his face but I was actually 6 feet away from him. I asked him if this had happened before and he said once before. What does this mean?


    Answer:

    This is difficult to interpret in a 6-year-old and could be just an attitude issue rather than a medical one. There is no condition that makes things look closer than they are but if you are concerned, I would have him evaluated by a pediatric ophthalmologist.
