  • ok well here is what i learned to do. show her the bite mark and then get to her level and tell her that its a no no and that it hurts then sit her in time out for two minutes after it is over tell her no more biteing or your sitting down agian, try that for a couple weeks and let me know i have a few other ideas as well.

  • my daughter bit me, and she would bite everything that mad her mad so one day when she bit her brother i grabbed a sippy with milk and a bottle of hotsauce.. she ran away came back to bit her brother i put a very small drop of hotsuace on his arm( vry small) just enough to make a point, and when she bit him she stopped looked at me and said hot! i gave her milk and sat down to explain when u bit it hurts u and brother she hasn't bit anyone else yet and that was a year ago..

  • idk my son bites all the time hes 21months, does it when hes mad or just for fun , we yell at him spank him on his butt not hard but to let him no he did something wrong, nothing has helped yet.

  • I have tried the time out and and showing her that thats not nice it just doesnt work for her. she only does when my niece comes to the house and she is only mean to her. i have 5 kids here during the weeek 2 girls 3 boys and she seems to be the meanest with the girl and the other girl doesnt do anything to her she bites her almosy everyday she's gets frustrating cause i have a son too that when it just the 2 of them she doesnt get in trouble.dont understand why it only when she is here.
