Hello,

You must be worried about nail biting of your child as it is belief that kids with nervousness or less confidence will bite nails but, it is just one of the reason for biting nails. There are many other reasons due to which child bite nails like:

If kid is teething then due to its irritation kid may bite nails.
It may be just habit
Habit of thumb sucking

You can find more information on thumb sucking: How to stop thumb sucking and pacifiers and its effect on teeth from:

First you need to find the reason why your child is biting nails

Once you find out the reason behind it work as per requirement:

In case your baby is nervous:

Try to find out the reason for it, spend some quality time with your child talk to her and resolve the problem.

Do not shout or punish your child for any habit.

Try to boost confidence of your child

Always appreciate good things and good behavior.

If it is just because of habit:

Explain gently what is right and what is wrong.

Do not humiliate child publicly for any habit or behavior

Best way is to ignore it and with growing age child will stop doing it.

If your baby is teething then visit your doctor and ask for gel that will heal the irritation due to teething.

Question how to avoid telling children not do a thing without using don't so this?...
If we tell children don't do this they are promted to do that but is ok to create a fear in child obout the thing we don't want them to do. for example if the child keeps hand or puts something ot the electric holes if we tell that there is fire her and show some dummy exmple some child put hand here and hand is burnt?Is it ok to lie like this ? Even for using moblibe phone also i told him the same he plays with mobile a lot he knows everything in it ? for this also i told him hand will be burned with the radiation? is it gud to tell like this to a 2.8 yrs child....
