nail biting

any suggestions on how to get my daughter to stop biting her nails she is biting them down to where they bleed! Thanks!

Roxanne used to/had started to bite her nails and I realized that she was copying me....I've since stopped biting my nails and after telling her, "Stop" and re-directing her attention when she was doing it, she quickly lost interest and stopped. Sounds like your daughter has an advanced lil' habit....I've heard of some people buying something that you can put on her finger nails that tastes bitter but isn't harmful and hopefully it will deter her from biting them?! I'm sorry but I don't know the name of the product.

Good luck.
