  • My four year old daughter went through this phase. And it was so nasty. I finally sat her down and explained what germs and bacteria is. And once I explained how it can make her really sick, she stopped doing it. It also helped her to start washing her hands and brushing her teeth a lot betther. I don't know if that will help or not. But that is just what I did.

  • My 4 year old just a few weeks ago walked up to a complete stranger and licked his hand LOL...That is my DH's fault. He plays a game with my son where they go back and forth licking each's a game to DS so he thought it was funny walking up to this stranger and licking him....which it was pretty funny but sooooo gross.
