My 16 month old is biting himself!! He bites himself on the wrist area, and it's starting to get bad cause he's starting to leave marks, and I'm afriad he's going to bite himself so hard that he makes himself bleed. I've known kids biting other people but not themselves.....I don't know how to teach him not to bite himself and or others!

 Oh no! The only thing I can think of is that maybe he's teething and his arm is the closest thing to him to gnaw on. The best solution I can give is whenever you see him do it, take his arm out of his mouth, tell him no, and give him something else to chew on instead. Hopefully after enough times, he'll figure out to chew on something else instead of himself. Good luck.
