How do I get my daughter to stop biting??

She's one year old and bites mostly when she gets angry. Can someone give me any advice please!

  • My kids used to bite and not just when they were angry, I tried tapping their mouths when they did it and it stopped for a while but then they would do it again only harder. I started telling them if you bite me I will bite back harded and you will cry. Well my son was 3 when out of the blue he bit me while I was holding him in my arms, I took his hand and chomped on his finger and then swatted his behind(diaperless behind) he finally got it. If I bite I get bitten too only harder.

  • Every mom I have ever talked to says to bite your child back, and its worked for all of them.
