My oldest never went through the tarable 2's. She did bite me one time though (she was still is sensitive) so all I did was cry and tell her how that hurt mommy so she hugged me and didn't bite no more. With my middle dd she went through the bitting since she was 18 months until she was 3 years (she thought it was funny when you cried so that didn't work on her). I thought she was never going to break. She never did bite me however. It was always her sister or other kids. I tried everything with her so much as even bitting her back (which my grandma swore by), but it was a mistake because she just did it more. Finally she stopped doing it. With my now 2 year old she bites her middle sister all the time (but she torments her) then she if I don't let her do something she has TRIED to bite me, but hasn't been able to latch on (mommy is fast lol), but now she doesn't try bitting me she will pinch me or smack me. I grab her hands and tell her no you don't hit mommy thats not nice, but she still does it. I do believe in spankings on the bottom don't get me wrong and people have told me to use that, but what I am afraid of his spanking her (even though it is on the butt) for hitting me that it is going to teach her that it is ok to hit me. The neighbor said no it wont because I am not hitting her I am spanking her and it is not in the same place as she hits me, but on her bottom. What are your thoughts on this and what can I do to teach her not to hit?
