  • LOL! We say it's a natural way to build the immune system. Just tell him no everytime he does it. We taught our kids the word 'germy' and told them that spreading germs makes us and our friends sick. Also, make him go wash everytime he does it. He will think that fun at first and then get tired of treking to the bathroom.
