I have a confession to make: I’m a nail biter. Actually I used to be a really bad nail biter but I’ve managed to curb my bad habit in recent years. I know it’s disgusting and an awful habit to have so that’s why I try to be mindful whenever I get the urge to you know, bite my nails.
Luckily though I have two children who don’t bite their nails at all. Even though they have other gross habits that I won’t mention or list here, for the most part they’ve managed to keep their fingers out of their mouths. But for one mom in Louisiana, she got the surprise of her life thanks to her nail-biting son. She opened up her mouth just to find something very strange about his gums. You won’t believe it when you see it.
Here’s why you should never let your kids bite their nails.
