Biting nails

superbeeJuly 9, 2004

My two year old toddler has suddenly started biting his nails! Any ideas on how to nip this habit before it becomes worse?

I vote for distracting him, rather than calling attention to it. That will only put him on the spot and make him a bit nervous - probably worsening the nail biting.
