A roundup of new guidance and stories from NYT Parenting.

How to Deal With Your Kid's Annoying Habits

"Stop eating peas with your fingers." "Don't pick your nose in public." "How many times do I have to tell you not to look at your shoes when you're meeting someone?"

Dr. Jacob Towery, a child psychiatrist and dad, wanted guidance on how to correct his kid's irritating or inappropriate, but not harmful, nose-picking style behaviors. He wrote a piece for us describing the surprising tips he learned from looking at the research and talking to child development experts. These ideas will help you deal with your kid's annoying behavior (while keeping nagging to a minimum).

Also on the subject of parental habits, NYT Parenting reporter Christina Caron set out to answer the question, "Is it bad to take so many pictures of our kids?" and found good news for the many of us who do. Plus, we published new reporting on programs that rely on parents connecting with each other to counter anti-vaccine sentiment.

Finally, we have Misha Collins, the star of "Supernatural," with a powerful essay about growing up without a home and how that experience has shaped his parenting today. "My upbringing taught me that you didn't need money to be happy, that you didn't have to play by the rules, and that the whole world was just begging to be explored," the actor and cookbook author wrote.

Tiny Victories

Parenting can be a grind. Let's celebrate the tiny victories.
When my son was 2, he would only allow me to trim his nails if I "terriblized his claws." He was obsessed with "Where The Wild Things Are" and loved to look at the "terrible claws" on the various Wild Things. He's nearly 5 and still patiently receives a weekly "claw terribilization" without incident.
