cutting toe and finger nails

Jaime - posted on 06/16/2009 ( 3 moms have responded )




My two year old still fights me (literally screaming and kicking) about cutting his nails, particularly his toe nails. Any tips or ideas to make it less of a fight?? I justworry because he is finally reaching doorknobs and when he closes the doors he catches his toes under the door and is really cracking his toenails, so I want to be sure they aren't getting too too long and that I am able to clip off the cracked part without hurting him during a struggle. .

Try to make it a group thing, do your nails at the same time. I really have never had a problem with mine so I'm not sure where exactly to go with this but I have four kiddos and they learn from each other. Maybe having dad do it sometimes or let him help to cut yours.

this task is very challenging no matter the age, it's best to do this while they're alsleep
