Our daughter had just started a new disgusting habit. She is licking the walls and eating her toys! We tell her that it is nasty and if she does it she's gonna get sick and havta go to the docter. She won't quit though. Any ideas on how we can get her to stop and can she get real sick from licking the walls?

take her to your dr. see if there is a chemical imbalance or a disorder. I heard of were people eat in appropriate things I can't think of the name of the disorder. if there is nothing wrong internally with her then Is she old enough to verbalize her sudden interest in wall licking and toy eating? Depending on the age of the paint on the toys and walls I read there was a recall on some toys made in Japan b/c of Lead also old paint used to have lead in it. good luck
