Q.

A 24 months old girl

my daughter who is 24 months bites her own nails, is there something wrong with her?

There is nothing wrong with her and this is very common behaviour. She is too young to be telling her to stop biting her nails and also if you keep on telling her not to bite her nails you will only reinforce the habit. So have patience and she will probably simply stop biting her nails by herself.
