please could anyone help me with any ideas to stop my 22 month year old from biting.He cuddles up to and then suddenly bites when you say NO he then laughs. He also loves arms when he is sitting on your lap.I dont think he relies how much it hurts. His nana has bruises on her arm.
I have the same problem with my 3 year old and Im stumpt too! People keep telling me to bit him back but I cant, Im trying to get everyone to ignore him for a couple of minutes after he does it, sorry but apart from that I've no idea!
Hi Angie, We had this problem with Harrison for a while, thankfully he doesn't do it too much now. He used to laugh when he was told off too, but we just continued to tell him 'no' and that it was naughty - I think he now understands it is wrong which makes it easier. Hope everything else is ok
Hi Angie. Daniel used to bite too, and we used to be cross and do the no thing, but it didnt make much difference. I asked for some help with it as I got quite upset (he bit his key worker at nursery) and the 'planned ignoring' was the advice I got. No eye contact at all (apparently its about getting any sort of reaction) saying no and removing and properly ignoring him for a few mins. It was weird as it was the opposite of what I was doing and takes a lot of patience, but has seemed to work. Daniel doesnt bite anymore, but he's a bit older and understands 'no' now and gets upset when we tell him off. You've got to do whats feels right for your family, but make sure everyone does the same thing. Its a toughy thats for sure!! Good luck!! xx
