  • she needs to bite him back or when he does it while it's still fresh walk him over and show him her bruise grab his arm and sternly bite onto it just enough to show control , by then most likely he'll wimper or laugh.. and put him in time out once or twice of that he'll be cured. show that it hurts and it's unacceptable thats all
