My son Aiden throws a fit whenever I try to clip his nails. I have to sit him in my lap and hold down his arms. Well that aggravated him more and he screams bloody murder. I feel like a terrible mom for having to hold Aiden down just to clip his nails. Afterward he runs away from me and he kind of ignores me. The same happens when I try to brush his teeth. My mom told me to wait until he goes to sleep at night and then clip his nails. But he sleeps in his crib and it seems like it would be very difficult to do it while he is laying down. I just don't know what to do. There has to be an easier way to get both things done.
