Snapping off bits of sapling?

Snapping off bits of sapling?

Is snapping off bits of saplings (morning glory, to be specific) considered safe? I have had one of my morning glory saplings wilt (limp leaves) and I snapped them off. Is this the right thing to do? The sapling is about 2 inches in height. It has a small shoot growing forth (that is with the two leaves removed).
