My son chewed his nails.. The bad thing is all you can do is teach him not to do it, which means some kind of punishment. Well not really punishment but look by the nail polish at a store or two, there is this stuff that helps to stop that. Some parents think its wrong but its better than the advise I've received from some old school parents which generally involve hot sauce (just so ya know folks, not save for the tiny tummy's!)
