How do you best teach younger babies that hitting, biting, and "tantrums" are not okay?
I kind of thought that she is too young for tantrums, but that is what people are telling me they are. She is 5 1/2 months, btw.
When she gets frustrated, she has a variety of very awful ways of showing it. Some pretty average. She screams, of course. She growls, scratches, grabs handfuls of skin, bites, kicks, screams, flails, beats her toys into the ground. She has been biting and scratching people in the face. I showed up to work today with a bloody and bruised forehead from where she got my face. She is pretty much just screaming all the time and I just feel like I am about to cry. The babysitter even quit. How do I teach her not to do this to people?
