At what age did your kids learn to clip their nails?

  • My 9yo does her own and has for about a year. I still do my other kids' nails (they are 8, 7 and almost 4). The 8yo could probably do his own but it's just easier to do it while I'm doing the younger girls. My 7yo couldn't handle it. She doesn't have the fine motor skills or strength to push the clippers (my 9yo has trouble with it).

  • My 8 year old still can't manage to do it. He sits there and fights with the clippers to clip. Last time he did it successfully the nails were still too long and had sharp corners.
