  • When you find out, please tell me. Ours is 6 and has no problems and picks his nose and wipes it on everything.

  • My 7 yr old continuously picks her nose and eats her boogers (sorry if TMI) but wont when she is at school, its only at home. I'm thinking of buying pepper spray for her fingers. I know they make some for nail biters which she does also.

  • Put pepper spray on his fingers, then when he picks his nose it will burn and he'll stop.
