Teaching Children to Blow Their Nose

Once your child has mastered blowing through their mouth, move on to blowing through their nose. Repeat the tissue blowing exercise, but this time with the tissue much closer to the face. Have our child take a deep breath and then try to blow a tissue using their nose (only exercise with very light objects – such as tissues or feathers – so as not to put too much pressure on nasal cavities and ears). You may need to hold your own index finger up and down on their lips, as if you are telling them to ssssh, to encourage them to blow through their nose. It may help to close off one nostril and blow through one side at a time. This seems to help some children feel the air move through their nose while keeping their mouth shut, which is the key – and the hardest concept for children to grasp.

Practicing over and over again is the key to getting your child comfortable with blowing their nose.
