  • Ok so i know it sounds harsh but do it back to her when she does it to let me point out that if she hits you dont give her a black eye but a swat to let her know it hurts.

  • Tell her to stop the biting. It's possible she's just feeling the texture of the hair and not meaning to pull it unless you react in a way she thinks is funny. If you yell or scream she'll think it's funny and do it again. Just hold her hand so she doesn't play in your hair again

  • what finkette said, my ex sitter had several kids and she swore by this, it worked for my son and the other two kids she was watching
