  • I'm right there with you. So is mine!! I tell people he doesn't discriminate cuz he'll hit anybody! and for (what I think) is NO reason. I read a book, "No Biting," He doesn't bite (exclusively, mostly pinches and smacks). From what I've learned from early childhood educators, I follow what the book and educators say (becuz i'm not going to hit him back or shun him). It's not a quick fix but it will have a more long term and lasting effect. Message me if you want to know what I do or you can get the book. :)
