Nose picking

needie posted:
My grand daughter Saph is always picking her nose or she has her fingers in her mouth. I've checked & I don't see anything ,but I'm wondering if there's something else going on. When she puts her fingers in her mouth it's always the thumb & 1st finger. To me it looks like she's holding her tongue. She'll be 5 in January & going to school soon, I'm concerned about these habits. Please help if you can, Thank you
