True, every young child between the ages of 0-2 often behaves in qwerky ways as their brains continue to develop. However, it becomes a red flag when A) It impedes their developmental progress (or causes it to regress), or B) it impedes on their ability to play appropriately, communicate, perform academically or socialize.
If there is ever any worry over what your children are doing, you should always take the conservative approach and ask your pediatrician.
