Avoid Biting Your Nails – Good Habits for Kids | Ask Coley Health Tips| Educational Videos by Mocomi


Avoid Biting Your Nails Coley: What are you doing Bumbley? Bumbley: Can’t you see? I’m trying to study here. Coley: Yes, I can see that. But what is it that you are doing with your
hands? Bumbley: You mean biting my nails? Oh well, we all do that. Coley: We do. But we outgrow it too. You seem to have been having this habit for
quite some time now. Bumbley: Oh Coley, I have no time for this! I am nervous about my exams tomorrow. Coley: Exactly my point. We tend to bite nails when we are nervous. But as you bite your nails, you transfer the
bacteria collected under your nails to your mouth and then to your stomach which may lead
to infections. Bumbley: Oh no.. Coley: Not just that, nail biting may also
cause your teeth to shift out of their proper position and even weaken them. Bumbley: But how can I help it Coley? Like you said, it’s a nervous habit. Coley: Yes, but you can change it. Bumbely: How? Coley: By replacing that habit with something
that relaxes you. Like ‘silly putty’ or a smooth stone you
can hold while studying. Bumbley: Hey, I hadn’t thought of that. I have a smooth stone right here. Let me try! Coley: Exams will come and go, but you need
to take good care of yourself Bumbley. Bumbley: And it becomes easier when one has
a friend like you, Coley!
