Hi everybody, it's been a while. Haven't posted anything since the redesign.
Anyway, ever since we took away his pacifiers when he turned 2, my kid has been a huge nail biter. I seriously have only clipped his fingernails once or twice in the last year. I was hoping he'd just stop on his own, but he hasn't. Here's where I admit that I've bitten my nails all my life. So...genetic, learned, who cares? He's a happy kid, chatty, extroverted, funny, smiley. So I don't think there's a deep psychological cause (for him or for me). Anybody out there had to deal with this?
I bought some nail polish called THUM, but that didn't do anything. Tried it on myself and it was pretty much flavorless. So I just bought some new stuff called BITE IT, which definitely tastes foul -- poisonous even -- but I'm a little apprehensive about trying it on him.
And if you've got any tips for the nose picking, that'd be great too.
