I have a 6 year old who has ADHD, and he is constantly biting his fingernails and toenails. It’s causing constant hangnails. I’ve never bitten my nails, so I honestly don’t know what to do to stop him. I figured this might be a good place for suggestions, since I assume there’s an underlying reason why he’s doing this.
We’ve offered him chewellery, he wasn’t interested. He has bitten through all my bamboo straws, and we have silicone ones now, but he doesn’t seem interested in chewing those, other than when he’s drinking. But I will catch him chewing his nails multiple times a day. He’s even doing it now!
