Our user Saumya Pillai has very nicely shared her experience of how she dealt with her son’s nail biting habit.
Nail biting is an indication of nervousness. It is a habit which can be found in both adults and kids.
When my son started biting his nails it used to make me angry as well as irritated .He never had this habit before he went to school. One fine day I asked him why does he bite his nails all the time and he simply answered saying that his friend who sits next to him at school does this.I got worried about this and started wondering how to make him get rid of this bad habit.
Then I patiently made him sit and made him understand as to why he should not bite his nails.
It can be due to surroundings or exam pressure of boredom which can make them uncomfortable resulting in anxiousness.
These are definitely some good tips!#toddlerbehavior
