Ok so my brother is 14 and just got suspended from the last week of school for bitting another kid. My mom asked me what I thought a good punishent would be because most disipline doesn't phase him. Any suggestions?

Update: My mother just received a letter from the family lawyer of the girl he bit. Apparently they are trying to charge him with sexual assalt.

I would take away everything. Maybe counseling. Toddlers may bite, not 14 yo. Can't it be considered an assault??

Yeah, that's really abnormal teen behavior. Does he have any sensory or processing disorders?

I would get him into to see a psychologist if he isnt under the care of one already.   What was the reason he bit the other child?

 that's not normal. at all. punishment isn't the answer here, your mother needs to find out what's going on with her son.

Im sorry your brother is having so much trouble. That stinks for him, and your family. Its rough when the people we love are having a hard time and acting out. Can I ask you to think about people in general? . We all act out when things are more then we can handle. Now, me, Im a screamer, a yeller and even a curser when Im pushed to my limit. My friends neighbor, well, he is a hitter... (As are many others) when they are stressed beyond their capacity, they hit... And your brother, well, he bit. 

Im sure your brother is a decent person most of the time... But when taxed, acts out. 

Im not saying its right at all... Im saying that bad behavior... Its a continum... It starts on one end with maybe a whine...A pout, Progressing down the continum to a cry, a yell, a curse, a bite, a hit... To setting fires, murder.. Its a continum... 

So, basically I don't believe your brother needs punishment. He needs help. Your mom should read the explosive child. Borrow it from the library, it is a quick, easy, helpful read for kids who act out.. And your brother is a kid until 18... She has 4 years to help him. She could also check out the website www.livesinthebalance.org. Again, helpful, informative, innovative ideas that WORK where punishments, concequences, and problems keep occuring. It is unconevntional parenting for unconventional kids... And it works!

Aparently this girl had ahold of him and knees him in the nuts, so he bit her.
