Putting An End To Nail Biting
Nagging and punishing will not be the appropriate strategies to break the habit as mostly nail biting tends to be done unconsciously. A good book to read together is Dawn Huebner’s "What to Do When Bad Habits Take Hold: A Kid’s Guide to Overcoming Nail Biting and More". Many activities will help your child to unwind and relax. For instance, doing an art and craft project, learning to play a musical instrument, running and outdoor play are ways to burn off tension and nervous energy.
