Peculiar Habit

Quite some time back ago, Mommy spotted Juan Or having this peculiar habit: lifting both his hands up to hit his own head! Where did Juan Or learn this gesture from? Mommy wondered at first. Then later on, Mommy learnt that Juan Or could have picked that up from the babysitter's place. One day, when Mommy went to the babysitter's to pick him up, Juan Or was still playing and crawling on the floor. Then, the babysitter's mother-in-law called Juan Or's name, and started reciting a Chinese rhyme that came together with some hand actions, and one of it being lifting the two hands up to hit the head! Mommy was speechless. Ever since then, the action became a habit for Juan Or despite countless reminders from Mommy, Papa, Grandma, Grandpa and Jidek (Second Uncle) against hitting his own head.
