Nail biting

No more nail biting

I just wanted to share something with you all. Since the training course in May I have been carrying out the process with both my boys, my eldest son was a nail biter, to the point where his nails were very sore and often would bleed.

Tonight driving along he said to my youngest son: “I don’t bite my nails anymore, I have no idea how I stopped but I just did”. I smiled and said that was great, I was bursting with joy! X

Totally Stopped Nail Bitting.

“The mother reports that there has been significant overall improvement for ‘Y’.  He is showing more life in his day to day activities. His Maths have improved, he is better in managing his stress from school work without throwing temper at doing difficult Maths.   

There is an improvement in his confidence regarding Study and he has proved to himself that he can do better.  Being able to overcome his carelessness at study has helped to boost his confidence in it. However his writing has declined by 15% but this is due to the new demands at school as they have started writing compositions and he is adjusting to this new demand. 

He has stopped nail biting totally and his day to day happiness has improved by 50%. He is seemingly happier and was able to remain calm and control his emotions, in particularly his anger better. His ability to work alone: Improved by 40%.  

He is learning to do his homework / spelling without supervision.  He is also able to play on his own and take interest in reading his books on his own.  His behaviour towards Parents has improved 30%.  There are less tension over school work and he is now more willing to listen and learn when I teach or guide him through certain issues.  

I realised that not only his behaviour is now better towards me, I feel that I no longer get angry with him as often as in the past.  We are now able to talk things out. 

I am very pleased with the results.  During this short span of 6 months, many of my pressing concerns were resolved.  Namely nail biting, carelessness with schoolwork, improving focus or concentration at school, being able to sit still at dining table to finish his meals.  

My son is now not only able to finish all his food during meal time, he is able to finish his meal with lesser time.”

Nail Bitting gone.. Next

“Two weeks later at a follow up appointment, the complaints of the parents had totally transformed. New problems came up such as poor and rushed handwriting, being quite annoying when he wants things (especially if his friends have them, poor response to peer pressure), did not share willingly and was bossy. His nail biting had further improved and his anger issues had begun to subside, and he had also begun to recall his classwork more easily. By this point he had been started on medication.

The father added in that his son overestimates his abilities and was afraid he was being smug, proud or hubris. He would take out his frustrations on his little sister by pushing her around, especially if his parents were not around to guide him, but could be calmed if sent to his room. 

A month later, at the final follow up after the foundation process the symptoms checklist once again looked remarkably different. The parents came in reporting absolutely nothing as less than good. 

His anger and anxiety issues had reportedly disappeared, and his parents reported 55% improvement in socially acceptable behaviour, 85% improvement in nail biting, and 70% improvement in stress levels reflected on parents.”
