Allow him to pick his nose and eat it?

Okay, my fiance and I agree on most things but this is just off....

My five year old SS just started picking his nose and eating the goods he finds. I try to stop him and my fiance sees nothing wrong with it.

He says it is building his immunity, I say it is bad manners and not sanitary.

What do you say?

  • i think fiance is strange. I would never just allow my kid to do that. Its nasty and if he does it at school he will be made fun of and left out. We had a kid who did this and he was the one everyone picked on and laughed at. Tell fiance to grow up.

  • Not only is it unsanitary, but the poor kid will suffer great social setbacks and be teased mercilessly by any other kid who sees him do it! I say tell your man to keep his opinion to himself and you put an end to it as soon as possible; before it becomes any more of a habit than it already is. Best Wishes!

  • Above all, it is just bad manners and a habit not to get started on. Nip it in the bud asap.

  • I was engaged to a guy who did that and many other gross things, needless to say, I broke it off. You can not build your immunity by eating your boogers, if this were true then you would probably see it in a public service announcement and in the AMA!

  • Come to a compromise.....have your SS do it in the privacy of his own room, but outside of his room he has to use a tissue and throw it away.
