  • Bite her back. That's the only thing that finally made mine stop.

  • When my kids started biting I would give them a very stern look and use a firm tone and say "NO biting. Biting hurts" and then I would redirect them and give them something they could bite(like teething biscuit) with a "here bite on this instead'.

  • Let her bite the wrong person and that person will bite her so bad she'll have no other choice but to stop biting. My son use to do this until my dad bit him back...he immediately stopped!

  • you don't want your child to bite---- so you bite your child.. . gee that wouldn't just reinforce that biting is ok because mommy did it? Hmm do as I say not as I do?
