子どもを持つ親にとって心配ごとのひとつに、「爪を噛む」「指しゃぶり」といった子ども特有の“癖”がある。無意識にしてしまう行為だけに、放置していると気づいたときには子どもの指先がボロボロになってしまうこともある。こうした癖を治すには根気強い指導や注意が必要で、子どものうちに治さなければ、大人になっても癖が抜けないということもある。

Translated: One concern for parents with children is “children’s peculiarities” such as “biting nails” and “thumb sucking”. Sometimes the child’s fingertips are frustrating when you realize that you are left untreating, only to the act of making you subconscious. To treat these habits requires patient patience and caution, and sometimes you can not get rid of habits if you do not cure it in your child even if you become an adult.
