How do I stop my son from bitting his nails?

I don't know where my 2-year old gets it from, nobody I know does this, but he won't stop bitting his nails! I tried the nail polish stuff but that almost encourages him to do it more...he likes it although I think it's GROSS! I haven't cut his nails in almost 2 months because every time I go to do it he has bite them all off!

Any suggestions?

  • You don't. I have been biting my nails forever. The only way I don't bite my nails is when I have my nails done. Don't make a big deal out of it or it will definately keep him doing it. Ignore him or distract him when he is biting his nails.
