Wiping Nose with Help

“Don’t Look Down Your Nose At Me!”

  • Leave a box of tissues within your child’s reach.
  • Make sure the tissue is soft so it doesn’t irritate your child’s nose.
  • During play, tell your child that the doll or stuffed animal has a cold.  Give your child a tissue and instruct your child to wipe their nose.
  • Wipe your child’s nose and have your child wipe yours.
  • When your child has a runny nose or sneezes, hand your child a tissue.  Wait to see if your child uses the tissue appropriately.
  • If necessary, guide your child’s hand to assist with wiping.
