Do you correct your child when they eat with their mouth open?

I cant stand to watch people chew with their mouth open. It drives me up a wall. Do you correct your child? Does it bother you when seeing it?

  • I definitely correct my child if he does it. And, honestly speaking, it grosses me out when anyone does that. I avoid eating with anyone with that habit, because it just makes me sick!
