My daughter is 17 months and just recently started bitting other kids in her daycare. I don't know what to tell them to do, because putting her in time out isn't working. They are about to kick her out of daycare and I know that I won't be able to work or finish my schooling so that I can provide her the things that she needs and wants as she gets older. She bit me once and I put her in time out and she hasn't bitten me sense. Can anyone help me please. I have run out of options.Answer Question
I hate to say it but when my kids did it i bit them back and they never did it again. I never bit them hard like they would bit but it was enough to get the point across that it hurts. I ran a day care for years way back when and I only had about 2 kids I had this problem with. I told the parents about it and they agreed that the biting back would let them know how the other child feels. She is only 17 months and they should not kick her our of day care for this reason. I never would of kicked any of my day care kids out for this. Do they have a playpen or something to keep her in when she bites and maybe she will realize everytime she bites she gets put in the playpen. I hope this helps.

My son had the same problem at that age, he always bit a particular child though, the class bully that thought he was the boss of the joint. They would send him home on days he bit. The mom made them do this b/c she started complaining. Anyway, does she talk at all. If she does start talking to about saying I am mad, sad etc. If she cant do it anyway. This is her way of realising stress, so it's just about her finding another outlet and teaching her to voice her frustrations. I would also talk to the daycare about what happened exactly before she bit, every time. This will help you find the trigger. When you find the trigger talk to the daycare about noticing it before she gets to the point of biting. This what we did with my son. He would start to get mad at the boy for not sharing or something else and they would find something else for him to do.
