it wont be a simple "cure" as there can be many causes. My now 3 year old did it a lot and is now being investigated for autism spectum disorders, but there are other behaviours with that. My 2 year old does it because of a visual and hearing impairment, but she could just be doing it because she can, or to stimulate herself. If you are concerned, take her to a gp and see what they say. What is her general development and behaviour like?
