Re: biting help... please i'm at my wits end

DD went through a biting phase for about 6 months (biting me, DH, and other kids). We gave time outs, told her that teeth are not for biting and that biting hurts, and explained that Mommy and Daddy like hugs and kisses instead. We also read her the "Teeth are Not for Biting" book and she was always requesting it.

I have no idea if any of these things helped or if she just outgrew it on her own (by around 20-21 months). Hugs to you and good luck.
