My son is 3 yrs (he's one of twins-his other half is a girl) he constantly eats non edibles such as blue tack, books, wood, crayon etc practically anything he can get his hands on...(his twin sister only ever eats paper which I understand is quite normal-how do I get him to stop? I'm at my tethers :-0

Kids always try puttin things in their mouth and are most the time curious on how things taste. As I am with mine I would suggest to just keep consistent with him. Keep a close watch when he is around those objects and make sure they are put up where he cannot get them when your both not using them (if possible). Stop him before he can try to put it close to his mouth. I know its hard and frustrating, but keeping consistent and firm with him is one of the best things you can do
