  • Do the parents know about this? I would tell them I was concerned for my daughters safety and if they don't put a stop to it I couldnt watch their child anymore.

  • You definitely need to talk with her parents and see how they discipline her for it, so that you can be consistant. If it continues to be a problem, you would be totally justified to tell them you can't watch their child. A daycare my kids used to go to would stop taking a child if they couldn't stop them from biting.

  • If it was your child i would say bite her back. I can remember being under the age of two and biting my brother, my mother bit me back and I never bit again. But you may not want to do it with someone elses child lol.
