  • How is the childs communication? a lot of the time its out of frustration and not being able to say what they want. Work on speech with the child. Yes there needs to be an immediate punishment – ie time out. But there is generally an underlying issue.

  • at three years old, they are aware that their behaviour is wrong so talk to the child

  • maybe a naughty cahir . there isn’t really much else .

  • how did you go? :)

  • My daughter has been slapping lately and I’ve gotten down to her level and told her that isn’t nice. She kept doing it so I gave her a quick gentle slap back and she was so shocked and surprised. I got back down and said that wasn’t nice was it so don’t do that to mummy and she has calmed down. Might work with the biting – explain that it isn’t a nice thing to do and if he keeps it up do it back to demonstrate how unpleasant it is.

  • Have you manged to stop the biting?

  • Hope he has stopped biting you by now.

  • Bite him back. Not to hard. Gives them a shock!

  • Try biting him back-not too hard though.

  • Had any lucky now with stopping it?

  • bite back! he will figure it out really fast that it hurts

  • Most kids go threw this, firm voice and sit on 1 spot for a minute.

  • Bite him back and hard show him how it feels they learn fast and if that does not work out a hot sauce in his mouth thats what i did and it worked and i only had to do it once

  • Everytime he bites you get to his level and tell him not to bite as it hurts then give him a time out every time he bites.Good luck

  • Ouchy, I hope you worked out something
