everytime I file my son's nails its like world war III.....I have tried the soft approach, distraction, sleepy time and right after he wakes up...He just hates it and fights me every step of the way. Sometimes I feel I am being to forceful and might hurt him but I have to hold his hand pretty tight so he stops pulling it away. Sometimes I let them go a little too long to avoid the fight but then of course he ends up with scratches on his face and ears and on us too. Any tips on how to make this process a little less painful for the both of us. I am not going to attempt to use clippers yet cause of all of his jerkey movements I would just end up cutting his skin...
