My oldest bit a few times and my husband started biting back.... and it stopped.. but if your not into that rout, you can try seperating him and isolating him everytime he does it. YOu say he does it when he gets mad.. sounds like you need to step it and difuse the situation before he gets mad. If you start to see him get frustrated, don't wait for the worst, step it and help him resolve the issue. EX, somone takes a toy that he is playing with, drop what your doing, and gently grab himby the shoulders and help him use is words to ask for the toy back, if the other child refuses, handle the situation and help your son calmly get the toy back. Eventually he will learn to deal in an appropreat manner... IF stepping in doesn't prevent a bit, then seperate him from the situation before he bites till he is calm enough to deal with.
