  • My son did that as well. I immediately told him no, it was mean to bite then I walked away and ignored him for a while. Some days I actually had to go outside the gated area of our house to avoid him. Just make sure that he's safe where he is. Biting is largely an attempt to get attention and if it has the opposite affect, it loses its appeal. Part of the problem may also be teething so you might also try giving him something to help with that..

  • what is the consequence for this? You need to make sure he knows that when he bites, his blanket will go in the closet (or some other consequence).

  • does someone play bite/eat him? or is he teething? if he bites make eye contact with him and in a firm voice tell him no biting. if that dosn't work you may have to listen to the 6:07 reply.
    also don't play the i'm going eat your tummy game or anyother game that may seem like biting to your child.
