Hi all, ever since he was little my little boy has hated me cutting his toenails. He's nearly 4 now. We use toenail clippers and virtually have to hold him down in order to be able to do it. We all suffer when we do it !!! but it has to be done as he has toenails that curve in to his toes so could become a problem if left to grow. We used to do it when he was asleep in the car but that doesn't work anymore now he is older.
Does anyone have any advice on how to get him to relax and let us do it without the struggle? He says it hurts but I'm sure it just feels weird rather than causes any pain. We've tried distraction techniques, bribery ... please help!!
