Hi all,
5 year old kid constantly hums or sometimes sings songs which he recently saw on TV.

This constant humming starts over the coarse of the day. When he wakes up in the morning, he responds and goes about his activities. This humming starts sometime in the afternoon when he is tired and cotrols himself from sleeping.

A quick search in Google as usual puts fear in the mind. There are discussions around Auditory issues. Really don't know how to make my son stop this behavior. 
Please note that we are always engaging our son with other kids, take him to places etc. 
Can someone please help me with your experience on the same problem?

Please note that this Humming behavior started only when he turned 4. Any suggestions / support regarding this will be of great help to us.

My kid who is 3 does the same. Singing or humming all day. She starts right from morning and I think she is using it a way to communicate to us sometimes since she is not very vocal yet.
We did Auditory screening for her last month and she passed it. I think it is more of seeking sensory input (google sensory sound seeking behavior) and filling in the quietness that they are uncomfortable about. Just a thought.
We live in Texas too.
