I don't cut my daughter's finger nails

...because she won't let me. That's what a parent said to me today. They're so long and she scratches other kids. I said she's not allowed back in my home until they are cut. She said she can't cut them because the child screams. Sigh.

Tell her to do it while the kid is sleeping.

Time for you to break out the clippers and show her how it is done with a screaming child or baby,

That doesn't seem like a good answer.

I wouldn't allow her back in the house either. That is nuts.

Ive only cut my two year olds a few times in her life just because they dont need it. I dont know if they break, are slow to grow, or maybe dh does it for her, but nearly every time I check them they are good to go. Hers arent long and she doesnt scratch anyone though.

I never cut DS's nails, but I would bite them, lol. I was afraid I'd snip the tip of his finger
