    Because it is actually a bad habit

    It can be annoying to some people, like cracking your knuckles. Or maybe his parents were very strict about his bad habits. Anyway, as long as you don't bite them too short it's harmless, but you'll have irregular nails, which isn't very neat, but that's your choice.

    Because he secretly wants to bite them for you.

    LOL that sounds so wrong. Just ignore him.

    Yes, many people say it is a bad habit, and it is. However, besides the fact that it's a bad habit and is "unattractive", your nails contain lots of bacterias/germs. Regardless if you constantly wash your hands, you will always be touching things whether its your clothes, your phone, your face. All these examples are also touching other things.

    Putting your fingers into your mouth regularly is not a good habit.  Bitten fingernails are not an attractive look.  Those are normally the two main points against nail biting.

    maybe because he knows you scratch your nasty asss with them and pull your drawers out of the crack..

    He wants to bite them for you after a special length but if you keep biting them they wont ever get to that length.

    Arrggh, I've never bitten my nails, the thought of jagged ends catching on clothing gives me goosebumps, not to mention bits of nail in my mouth. Nail-biting is a bad habit and your dad is trying to get you to stop it.
