We have been trying to stop Faith from biting her nails for a while now. Nothing has worked, even the disgusting tasting nail polish is useless, she just eats right through it. Yuck! So we continue to struggle with her to make her understand she shouldn’t bite her nails.
However, I think she is starting to understand why because the other day she came crying to me to tell me her fingers hurt. I could see she had bitten her nails to the point where there was almost no nails on her fingers. I told her the reason her fingers hurt is because she keeps biting her nails.
Here is a funny conversation I had with her just a few days ago:
She was biting her nails again. and I said “Faith stop biting your nails.” She said, “I’m not Daddy. I am picking my nose.” Ugh! Another disgusting habit!
Any parents out there with some advice on how to stop the disgusting habits?
