Biting Himself

I just put my 2 3/4 yo son down for his nap and he began crying hysterically. I went up to see what was wrong. He told me he hurt is finger. I looked at it and it had teeth marks on it. I asked him if he bit himself. He replied that he had while tears were running down his face. I asked him why he would want to hurt himself. He had no real answer. I told him that it made me sad that he would want to hurt himself and please not do it again. First, of all, why would he do this? Second, did I handle ot ok?

  • He probably did it by mistake. My son at that age bit his fingers by mistake when he ate all the time.
