Cut your toddler's nails while he's "playing" with the computer
Another distraction-while-grooming tip! From Stephanie:
Cutting nails has ALWAYS been a struggle with my son (now 2). He absolutely hated it and I was always afraid of cutting him since he was squirming so much until I found...THE COMPUTER (insert any favored hands-free distraction here. -- Ed.). I go to the Sesame Street website and let him bang on the keyboard. Meanwhile, he doesn't realize he's even getting his nails cut. It worked so well he now asks if he can go "Cut your nails?"
