Tot Talk: Kids That Bite

Put your finger into the mouth of a baby teething, you're going to feel some pain. Duh!
Why would you put your finger into my mouth? what did you think I'd do?

Age is a very big factor in biting.  A two year old will bite out of frustration or when they can't..,
verbally express themselves. Biters will bite anyone who is in their way or they will bite those who are frustrating them. Babies bite too, but normally this is due to teething, so keep your fingers out of their mouth.

If your toddler takes a bite out of you, the best way to resolve this behaviour is to immediately say "no" pick your child up and take them out of the area. Calmly discuss their behaviour an mention your disapproval. Your child will soon learn that every time he bites, he will have to leave the play area.  He won't be very happy about that and will soon learn that he is missing out on the fun.  

Make sure that you tell your child's teachers about the biting.  It's always a good idea to give a heads up so that teachers can monitor the other children, to ensure that no one gets hurt. Do you believe in biting your child back to teach them how it feels to be bitten?  I'd love to hear your thoughts.
