I had the problem with Kiwi, and I still do with my nieces who I keep on occasion. I make a game of it, chasing them with a tissue, laughing, then when I catch them, I wipe their noses, hand them a tissue and tell them to "get what I missed", then have them say bye to the snot and boogers and throw it away. I always to Kiwi that I would wipe her nose until she was old enough to do it herself. Turns out, that was all she wanted, that's why I started giving her a tissue as well. Once she felt like a big girl, a part of the "nose wiping team" as she called it, it was a lot better. Now, we keep a box of tissues in her room and she throws them away and washes her hands in her own bathroom.
