RICARDO REYES, Manuela. Behaviour of children from primary school with digital suction habit after an educational intervention. MEDISAN [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.2, pp.222-227. ISSN 1029-3019.

An educational intervention was carried out to modify the knowledge and behaviour of 48 second grade students with digital suction habit, belonging to 94 "Marcos Martí Rodríguez" primary school in Santiago de Cuba, during 2009. After the educational activities based on participative-affective techniques, particularly pleasant for the students with those ages, 32 (66,66%) quitted that deforming practice because they understood the damage from the aesthetic and functional point of view.

Keywords : child; primary teaching; digital suction; deforming habit; change of attitude.
