How did you stop your child from biting?

My son is 2 and is a horrible biter, any ideas on how to stop the biting? He's been bit (by another kid) and just laughed at them & bit back. we've tried timeouts, im running out of ideas.....

  • When my younger brother was toddler, he bit our mom and she made him bite himself and that stopped it. Of course that was thirty years ago so you probably couldn't get away with that now.

  • My daughter bit me hard once and I did it right back. I think it hurt her feelings more than anything. She didn't bite me anymore.
