How do you stop your kid from picking his or her nose?

It's gotten so bad she's picks it til it bleeds. I've asked her to stop, told her to stop, explained it's passing germs, told her it makes it ache, every possible thing but nothing seems to be working.

Any advice? She's 3.

  • I hope you get a good answer! My daughter is a picker too. She got on the stage at her dance recital rehearsal w/ her finger in her nose!

  • Put hot sauce on her fingers. That will break her.

  • I can't imagine that breaking her from picking her nose. Maybe from thumb sucking, but even for thumb sucking it never worked on us! My sister sucked her thumb until she was 8!

  • If she is picking bad enough to bleed the hot sauce will burn when it touches the sores.
