  • I don't know how to break the habit but you need to quickly because I started when I was in the fourth grade and I'm 21 now and I still haven't been able to break it.

  • Ohhh yeahhh BTW thereis this stuff called STOP sold by the fake nails in Walmart that leaves the most horribly awful nasty tastein your mouth that you paint on like nail polish. But FYI I tried it on my kids to quit sucking their thumbs and it worked almost INSTANTLY - BUT - I tasted it one time by accident and couldn't bring myself to use it on them again. It's jst such a bad taste :( But I bet it works!

  • There's a nail polish out there that is extremely BITTER and helps to stop nail biting!

  • Bitter nail polish. unles she downs the whole bottle all at once, it should not hurt her.
