This has probably been covered before & I have posted before but I can't find my post. Anyway, my 4yo DD is a major nail biter, I am trying the stop biting stuff, I have 2 types, but neither appear to work, she has absolutely no idea she is doing it & if she isn't biting her nails she is chewing whatever else she is holding, she even chews her clothes - any ideas on how to break this dreadful habit? I feel like since she has started school all I do is say stop biting things, she must be sick of hearing it (and I am sick of saying it)

No ideas. I'm in my late 40s, and have bitten my nails since I was about 18 months old. I have tried numerous different ways and have never managed to stop for more than a couple of weeks. I have never even really worked out the cause - I do it when stressed, bored, tired, if there's a rough bit on my nail .....
I would definitely stop nagging about it though. That really won't help.
