My kindergarten-aged child has discovered (the joys of?) picking her nose, and gets nosebleeds 2-3 times per week because of it. Are there any ways to discourage this behavior? We ask her to blow her nose, and discourage picking when we catch her, but does anyone have any other tips? Thanks!

I found that having to blow then wash afterwards decreased picking dramatically. A little vasoline on a qtip rubbed inside the nostrils can help with dryness.
