In brief: You can't

This is an annoying habit to parents and telling the child only causes persistence.
My experience with young patients is that they often have other behavioral symptoms that indicate an irritable brain. In most cases it is related to "junk" particularly the incredible ingestgion of sodas and all forms of sugar.
