He is always covered in bogies and she doesnt seem to notice. It puts me off my coffee makes me feel slightly sick. He is 4 so should he be able to blow his own nose? Should i say something or AIBU?

Perhaps..... Oh sweetie here have a wipe and ask Mummy to clean you all up.

yuk! I would hand her a box of tissues and say "I think little Johnny's nose needs wiping" but then snot makes me sick. I can handle everything else, but not snot.

sometimes they wont let their mum wipe their nose but are happy for a friend or even stranger to do it!!

Have a friend with a kid like this. i just say i think 'roberts' nose needs wiping. It is gross. FGS - mothers with snotty kids - wipe it asap.grin

A friend of mine has a child with a constantly runny nose. She has said she's got so used to it she doesn't notice. Your friend might just need reminding, but I think you can just offer tisses on a regular basis.

DS couldn't wipe his own nose very successfully at 4 though, IIRC.

Is it me and my ds's? I have impossibly grubby children.
