  • Yeah,the biting has to stop,they will do it to other kids if it is not stopped right now! Try taking things away like toys,t.v., give them an early bedtime.

  • My daughter was biting at 4 years old. I told her if she did it again i would put soap in her mouth. now i would never have the guts to use real soap and the next time she did it I went into a panic. I took a q-tip dipped in water sqooshed it in her mouth and asked her how it tasted she cried thinking it was soap and said that it tasted so bad. I asked her if she was going to bite again she said no, and I told her to go wash her mouth out with more water. never did it again the key words were How does that taste. It cemented the whole idea

  • I know this is pretty old fashioned and probably really looked down upon, but "back in the day" my mom bit me back ONE TIME and that was the last time I bit anyone lol but since it doesn't seem to be a habit she has i wouldnt worry :) Kids are going to fight no matter what you do, especially sisters, hec me and my sister have been fighter 20 yrs lol
