My daughter started biting her nails a few months ago. I have talked to her about germs being under her nails. I have also tried painting her nails and special things like that. Now she is biting her toenails. Last night she almost bit off the entire nail on a few of her toes. I know exactly what was going on at the time all of this started. The problem stemmed from her father and his girlfriend at the time being physically abusive in front of her when she was there. Any suggestions on how to get her to stop biting her nails would be appreciated.
