Not what you think.. I'm actually ADVOCATING for my children to be nail biters.. Well, not so much finger nails, but toe nails.. Yes, I know, gross..
But have you ever tried to cut a child's toe nails? Not the easiest task is it? Now try to cut that child's toe nails when he's on steroids?! And not figuratively, literally on the juice. Yeah, whole different ball game.. (no pun intended). Ok, pun intended.
The trick seems to be sitting on the off leg, as well as some of the 2nd leg while holding the foot of the nails you want to cut. Also, letting them smack you in the butt seems to be a good way of distracting them while you cut their nails. Plus, they think it's funny and concentrate less on you clipping. Trust me, whatever works.
Either way, I will be super happy when the day comes that they can cut their own nails. And shower. And wipe. And tie their shoes. And brush their teeth. And..
