Cutting nails - need ideas
I cut my son's nails (he's 27 months) when he's eating. I act like the scissors are hungry too, and that they need a snack. Usually they swoop in and trim a few nails on one hand and then he yells no, and then they "cry" and beg for more nails, etc. It takes a while, sometimes two meals before they are all trimmed, but it works out!
My DD is really interested in the names of the fingers, so we talk about that as we go along. I usually set a goal of only a few fingers at a time, so it's easy to accomplish and she sees how fast and easy this really is. Also, we have these baby nail clippers with lights, and boy does she love those lights. When she was younger, the lights made her LOVE nail clipping. I think that's why she's still so good about it now.
