I don't know what you've read, but I don't think that biting nails can be a symthom of some patology. The reasons of biting nails can be very different. You child can simply be excited and that's why he bites his nail. I know a grown up man, a professor, who bites his nails when he is thinking about something, and when someone him what is he doing, he answears that he's thinking, and his nail are bitten almost till blood. But if you really worry about your child, then you should go to the doctor, I think to the psychiater and he would find out why your child bites his nails. It's up to you.

Hi everybody and everyone here friends. How are you feeling today? Is everything okey with? What would you like to tell me? Hmmm I am not well aware with this question to be honest. I just also know that the reasons are varied: stress, heredity, internal aggression, physiology or plain boredom. It is believed that, biting his nails, children subconsciously aligned; gnaw their defects, errors, problems. Parents must first ensure that the baby is in comfortable environment and to eliminate anything that might disturb it. In any case you should refer to the specialist

Yes, nail biting is one of the usual things among children. Practically all children do such things. I don't really think that it canbe a serious problem. But it can be a reason of some stress, so if you really think that something can be really serious, you should find out the reason of such behaviour in your child.

Nice to meet there all of you!!! And what about you ??? I just also think that the reasons are varied: stress, heredity, internal aggression, physiology or plain boredom. It is believed that, biting his nails, children subconsciously aligned; gnaw their defects, errors, problems. Parents must first ensure that the baby is in comfortable environment and to eliminate anything that might disturb it. I think that you as parents should find out more information about the reasons and try to do something with it

I don't think that it can be a great problem, though I think that you should just pay more attention to your child. Biting nails may be a sign of some nervous state or it can be just a bad habbit. Many children have a habbit of biting nails or pencils, pens or something else. Observe when your child do it and them act according to the situation.

I suppose it is a common problem for most children. I would like to say that as I know it causes with the chains of stressful situations. And here Adam is right that you should not scold the child for this habit, yelling at him because the kid will be more anxious, it will have more psychological problems already from now the this fear of adults. You need to talk to the kid about what is bothering him, perhaps he needs help . And if you don't know what to do. I recommend you to refer to the specialist

Hi friendly boys. I am as usual happy to meet you here today.. Biting nails can be caused by many reasons. But to my mind the most common one is of course stress. It is important question and to my mind you as a father should help your kid to get rid of that kind of a habit, you will save yourself from the necessity to go to the doctor in future, with the helmints and all other diseases of the dirty hands, as they call it. there is a standard list of such bad habits, including biting the nails can lead to horrible problems with health

Parents must first ensure that the baby is in comfortable environment and to eliminate anything that might disturb it. Also, you must remember: do not scold him for this habit and do not accentuate it, before going to sleep it is good to give tea or warm milk with the addition of a teaspoon of honey, and teach the child to take power itself, make him a manicure, accustom to care for nails, paying attention to their beautiful and well-groomed look, when they are not bitten

You know this theme is very interesting and useful. When I was little, I often bit my nails, and my mother threatened to spread chilli on my fingers,of course she never did that. She simply told me how much germs I'm sending into my body when biting the nails and how many viruses I can pick up.
I was so afraid and I stopped biting nails. You need to explain properly all this to the child! find a right way! I want to assure you that the kid will understand you if you explain normally. Children sometimes are more clever than adults.

Nail biting is a common problem—over 60% of children and 45% of teenagers bite their nails. Fortunately, there are effective ways to help stop your child from biting her nails. The information described in this article is supported by scientific evidence from the National Institute of Health and The American Psychiatric Association’s "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.” Consider letting your child help pick the strategy that she feels more comfortable with. Distract your child’s hands. Help her to find something else to do with their hands. Some good ways to keep a child’s hands busy are: Drawing and painting.Knitting. Sculpting with clay. Playing a game.
