So my two year old daughter has been picking her lips so badly that sometimes they are a bloody mess. I will watch her and it looks so painful and I ask her "Avril doesn't that hurt?" But usually I get no response it's like she just has to do it. I know she is young and I don't want to read to much into this. But I can say her life is pretty much stress free I mean she is 2. Our family very much loves and respects eachother and we have lots of fun together. Yes of course we have some underlying issues in all of our pasts (the sdults that is) and hopefully they are not hereditary. But even if they were would they show up this early?
