I have a spirited two year old boy who picks at any scab, scar, mark, blemish...you name it, on his body. And he won't stop. I've figured out how to deal with him picking other parts of his body (I put on a really sticky band aid that he can't get off) but I don't know how to stop him from picking his lips. He picks them until they are bleeding, oozing and really sore. They aren't chapped or anything before he starts. It's just a really bad habit of his. He does it when he is alone in his room and we can't see him. My guess is that it helps him to relax and relieve tension. I have no idea what to do to get him to stop, or how to redirect that nervous energy. Does anyone have any ideas? Any moms of spirited kids deal with similar issues? He is an unbelievably intense, high energy kid.
