Putting An End To Nail Biting

Putting An End To Nail Biting
7y
Behavior

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.
