    No, not been asked that one!! I dont think your allowed to even cut a childs nails - could be seen as child abuse!!!

    I have too, in the 'olden days' before Ofsted been asked to cut them. First time parents are sometimes too scared to do it and babies scratch themselves. I would however not bite them

    Me neither Jen, not even in the old days. This lo was about 3 years old and just refused to let Mum or Dad cut his nails so I did it. They asked me every time after that. He's 16 now and moved away so I don't do them now. Some things were so much easier B.O.

    I'm guilty of asking nursery to cut my sons nails because he wouldn't let me!!!!! I did ask really nicely though and said I knew it was beyond the call of duty!!!! But they were a nice bunch!

    OMG I can't even cut my husband's nails, he's in the home and they are often disgusting and I dread to think what it is I did them once and they brought me latex gloves to wear!

    My dil used to bite Hollie's nails.

    Lots of things were easier pre Ofsted. Like when you had finished for the day, tidied toys away - that was it, day over. No paperwork except accounts, register and accident book.

    I've cut nails before, young mum was terrified to do it, not a problem, happy to be of assistance. I would draw the line at biting them though.
