My 6 year of son started bitting his nails when he started school last year. His nail bitting has gotten bad. He has ADHD and is on medicine. The kids he makes friends with are mean and make fun of him. He's very shy. He tells me no one plays with him and all they do is pick on him. I keep telling him he's very smart and has nothing wrong with him. That the kids are mean and has something go on in their life that makes them want to make fun of others. Please help me out. If he doesn't stop his fingers will get infected. ThanksView Thread
