My dd has picked up a terrible nail biting habit from DH. They both bite their nails so low...
She is 4.5 years old and I want to stop this habit now while it's still pretty new. She has her fingers in her mouth 95% of the day now, chewing away.
She wants to stop biting them because she wants them painted and I told her when she stops biting them, I'll take her to the salon and she can choose a color to have the lady paint them. I'm not taking her before then since I don't want her chewing the paint off, obviously!
I know they make some yucky-tasting stuff that you can paint on the nails, but I don't know what's in it and I'm betting it's probably something I don't want her putting in her mouth, right? Is there an essential oil or something that would work? She HATES anything minty. Help! Any ideas for me?
