Cut your daughters nails right back and then file all the rough edges off. Then get down to her level and tell her that it is really unkind to scratch peoples faces and that it hurts. Tell her you do not want her doing this anymore and if she does she will have to go to her room until she can be nice to people. This is not accetable behaviour and should be nipped in the bud now. When she does it again pick her up and say I told you this is unkind so you are going to your room and say nothing more than that, put her in her room and make a big fuss of your son. She will hate being excluded and the fact that your son is getting the attention.
