My 9yo dd bites her nails til they bleed! I have done everything to get her to stop including putting that stuff on that tastes awful. I have had enough it is gross. I have run out of options. I got her nails done. My 9 yo has a full set of gel nails. They are short and pink but i wonder what the teacher will think of it. What would you think if you saw it?

I might think it's a little over the top.  But do what you have to do.

I think fake nails are a great idea... if they have a problem they can suck it...

 I have to admit...without an explanation I would think it was ridiculous. But there's a good chance the teacher knew that she had a nail biting problem so I doubt she's going to think anything of it.

Don't surprised if she bites them off. I did. It is nervous habit and nothing my parents did helped. It only made things worse.

I'm a nail biter. Fake nails won't stop her from doing it.

Ive seen a lot of young girls with nails that have french manicures on them I do think a french maybe be a little extreme. But if this is the only way to get her to stop biting her nails then you do what you got to do.

I wonder if it will help; I know that I would just chew on them, too. I chew on everything, though. When I run out of nails, I move on to skin or pens, etc. I chewed the varnish off the coffee table when I was a toddler.
