  • 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.
