How do you get a 3 year old child to quit eating boogers... We have tried humilation, time out, took toys away....
Booger : Booger eating is a gross, yet common habit among preschoolers. One of the more effective ways to stop this habit is redirection. Often, kids will pick their noses because they are bored or their hands are idle. If you see him going for his nose, redirect him by giving him a book or a toy - something to occupy his hands. It can also be helpful to explain that nose picking spreads germs and can make people sick. Another helpful tactic is to always have tissues with you and when he reaches for his nose, hand him a tissue giving him a more socially acceptable alternative. If he complains that his nose is itchy (possibly from dry air) you can run a cool mist humidifier in his room overnight and occasionally dab petroleum jelly or saline drops in his nose to keep his mucus membranes from drying out and itching. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If adults acquire cognition delays, i.e. memory, brain function, dementia or other issue should be ruled out. ...Read more
