My son recently decided that biting was a good idea. He's not teething either. He will randomly go up to his brother while playing and bite his finger. Time out's don't work because he runs to the corner and then tells you sorry as soon as he is there. We've tried sending him to his room and that doesn't work. He'll be two in a little over a week. I really don't like the idea of biting him back, but is that what I need to do? I feel like doing so would be encouraging the behavior. Any ideas?Answer Question

All 4 of our kids went through that, & the only thing that put a quick stop to it was when we bit them & explained to them that that is how it feels when they bite others. You don't have to do it very hard, just enough to help them understand the pain they are inflicting onto others when they bite. Worked like a charm.
