I like the hand washing idea! But what do you do if your at the park or something and there is no water? Ignore it? Time out??

My ds doesnt do the booty, but picks his nose, messes with his stuff and sucks his fingers. Dd picks her nose too. Eveeytime I see it I tell them to wash their hands. Dds older and she does a lot less since enforcing hand washing.

I do the hand washing because it's gross and they news to wash their hands but mine love to play in the sink so that doesn't stop it. Maybe I should find a no suds soap or something.

Don't ignore it! I do sanitizing wipes and a quick timeout sitting by mommy. He hated it!

I tell my son that when he's taking care of his private business ("cleaning" his nose, or poking at his penis- we haven't had issues with butt picking) he needs to "go have privacy" in the bathroom. It's a nonchalant sort of "oh, sure" sort of thing around here now. He does have a hard time when he's in public and really want to pick his nose. But if I whisper in his ear to remind him to find some privacy to take care of his body he'll stop picking his nose bc he doesn't want to miss anything.

He does spend a lot of time just staring at and poking/pulling/admiring his penis when he's on the potty. So I just tell him it's obvious he needs some privacy and I'll be in the other room. "oh, and be sure to wash your hands - we always wash hands after cleaning/caring for or bodies!"

Re: Nose picking, butt picking, and other little boy bad habbits.

Tharen only picks his butt when wearing pants. He is fine in PJ's. I don't know what it is about jeans or TKD gis that cause him to need to pick his butt. Perhaps it is simply being out of the house where it will be most noticeable to other people. I really thought it was his underpants riding up but changing types of underpants didn't help and it really only happens when he is in jeans or the TKD gi. My oldest is the nose picker and I don't think he even realizes he is doing it most of the time. It is really really gross. I will try the handwashing thing and see if it helps.
