My otherwise bright son is a mouth breather. Any tips on getting him to stop?
Check with an ENT to make sure there are no sinus issues. If he's totally healthy, then you have a couple options.
1. Don't sit or stand by him. Really, he's not doing anything wrong. It's just annoying to you.
2. If you simply can't stand it, give him $10 in quarters each week and tell him that you'll charge him a quarter every time he mouth breathes near you. On Saturday he can spend whatever is left. It only takes a few weeks to create a habit.
Also, how do I keep my three boys from getting toothpaste all over the bathroom counter. And mirror.
Hi. I'm M.E.
Growing up my brothers called me a know-it-all. I wasn't. I just acted like it.
