1. Always trim their nails. Nails that are trimmed are always neat and do not break easily. Dermatologists suggest that a grown-up should trim a kid’s nails until the point when the kid is around 9 or 10 years of age. Kids that old can learn to trim their nails.
How to care for kid’s toenails and fingernails:
When your kids are old enough to take of their nails, you should instruct them with the following:
• Immediately after showering, they should trim their nails. Nails are milder at that point, so trimming is less demanding.
• Utilize nail scissors or nail clippers to trim nails.
• Cut fingernails straight over. Trim the corners to a cycle shape to keep the nails solid.
• Allow the cuticles to stay unbothered. Do not cut them or push them back because they protect the nails.
