Nose picking... how do I stop my 2 year old?

She started like couple month ego when she got a bad cold and later had lot of dry mucus in her nose. But now she picks her nose on every occassion even when there is nothing there? I clean her nose and wash it often to remove any dry mucus, but she is sort of making it a habit and its so embarassing when she does it in front of company or out when we are shopping. How do I stop her?

  • You gently tell her it is not a nice thing to do in public. You can't stop it and swatting her hand won't work. So, start teaching her that it is only OK to do this in her room or the bathroom, only with a tissue, and let peer pressure handle it as she gets older.
