  • WHEN MY SON WAS THAT AGE HE STARTED TO BITE, ALL WE DID IS POP HIM EVERY TIME HE DID IT AND TELL HIM THAT WE DO NOT BITE PEOPLE OR ANIMAILS. IT WORKED FOR US GOOD LUCK

  • Please do not hit your child to discipline. How can you teach a child not to hit otherwise?
    When your son bites take him to another room and say "no biting" then hold him in your lap facing away from you for a minute and a half then repeat "no biting" give him a kiss and move on.
    If you can see the bite coming and can distract him all the better.
    Consistency is key.
