My 3 yr son bites his finger (and toe) nails. He bites them down so far to where they almost bleed. How do I get him to stop?

have the same problem with my 2 yr old daughter. tried the stop-bite nail polish and it didn't even phase her. still checking around and talking with other moms to find something that may help. if i find something, I'll be sure to share! Good luck to you also.

we have a thing in australia called Stop'n'Grow, my mum used it on me, its fowl. May work, depends on the reason the child is doing it. I am 32 and it didnt work on me that long. I still do it. I have stopped on occasion, but always go back to it.

my 2 1/2 yr old son is doing the same exact thing!! He's made a few of his fingers bleed because he bites them down so much. I finally heard of something that you put on their fingers and it tastes gross. I guess you are supposed to put it on everyday for about 10-14 days, however long it takes to break the habit. I went to walmart to get it the other day and they discontinued it in the store because they werent selling enough!! Maybe your walmart would havew it. I don't know what it's called but I know its now in the nail care aisle. i am going to check Walgreens. Good luck!
