QUESTION: Can children tape their mouths at night? (I have a 6-year-old who is very curious.)
ANSWER: Yes, it usually works out fine for many 6-year-olds to tape their mouth, especially if they are curious and want to try it. It doesn’t work as well if parents try to convince a child. ? There are even 5-year-olds who tape their mouth. Although it is individual and may work, I do not recommend that children younger than 5 years of age tape their mouth at night.
