My son hates having his nails cut. Any suggestions?

He is 11 and has had this problem for years. For the most part we try to let him do it himself but if he won't do it and we have to do it for him he kicks and screams. It is almost scary that he is so sensitive to it. Any suggestions?

My son os almost 6 yrs old and has never liked his nails cut....I cut his at night right after he falls asleep...just make sure u do it when he is in a deep sleep
