I’ve been trying to teach my nine year old about picking her nose in private or at the very least, use a tissue! She was unaware that I was watching when she began picking her nose again however, in her eyes, she had come up with an acceptable solution. With the non picking hand, she was putting it up in front of her nose as a form of a discreet barrier! Now that’s thinking outside the box!

  • Good one!! Maybe she’s got a dry itchy nose. Mine gets like that occasionally. Dr. and Mum tracked the cause back to a seasonal grass allergy. Instead of getting a stuffy blocked nose mine is just the opposite.


  • Sounds like a clever child! Thanks so much for sharing this!


  • Hahaha at least she has considered your advice :p


  • That’s one clever kid you got.


  • Te He .. Gotta give her points for trying.


  • hahaha that made me laugh! At least she took on your advice to some degree hahaha


  • Well, at least she’s making an effort…
