I want her to stop. It's so nasty for her to spit in everything hacking into cups and our best crystal. I buy plastic cups she still goes into china cabinet and takes out stuff. Everytime I offer her anything she has to go do this or she will pick up a bottle of water in her room and spat in any thing close. I bought a small trash basket and gave her Kleenex. She urinated in the trash basket so I took it out. It's probably nothing I can do about this spitting But this new behavior is another one to add to so many awful things.
If all is well in the swallowing department, I hope this phase passes quickly.
She needs constant supervision. If you see her heading for the china cabinet, grab a cup or a tissue and tell her “No, no, Mom. We don’t use those glasses for spitting!” Hopefully, this obsession will end soon. If not, you may want to explore alternate living arrangements for her.
