Nose picking?

How do you get a kid to stop picking their nose???? (And eating it! - that's a new nasty addition to an already disgusting habit)

  • We sing the song: Take your finger out your nose, out your nose.
    Take your finger out your nose, out your nose.
    Take your finger out your nose 'cause that's not where it goes.
    Take your finger out you nose, out your nose.
    Goes to the tune of: If Your Happy and You Know It.
    It's a funny way to remind them to keep their fingers out of there.

  • Make as little of the whole thing as possible. Short, off-handed comments that hold little emotion like 'oh, you can be more grown up than that'... or 'that doesn't impress anyone.'

    You may like to get the treatment for pinworms: that's the source of a lot of kids' nose picking.
