  • Firmly tell her: "No biting." Then put her in time out for one minute per every year of the child. Try not to have a big reaction because she may think that it is fun and continue doing it. Good luck, and I hope that he stops his biting soon.

  • I agree with Svetlana, timeout will work great, and be consistent or it won't sink in. Good luck:)

  • Firmly tell her No Biting. Also, talk to her about why biting is bad. This helped my daughter; she doesn't do it anymore.

  • Spank her. I spank when it involves something like that, that could hurt someone, or themselves.
