Obnoxious Behaviors in 3 y.o.
Name an annoying habit or behavior and my son probably loves doing it. Can I get him to stop them, or am I simply laying a foundation for later when I explain to him, for example, that people don't like seeing others pick their noses and eat it. Also, my son LOVES attention, and ALWAYS has since he was a baby. He will go up to complete strangers and serenade them, singing "Twinkle, Twinkle Traffic Light." He will buddy up with adults in charge like the docents at the zoo or the staff at the wading pool or the musicians at church and want to talk to them and watch everything they are doing. He will say "hi" to literally everyone he comes in contact with and if people don't say "hi" back, he loudly narrates, "He didn't say 'hi.' Why didn't he say, 'hi?'" Not only is this a potential safety issue, but he can be a bit of a public nuisance in some people's eyes. Any ideas on how to guide him so that his extrovertedness and curiosity are kept in line and remain positive attributes?
