    Default Biting

    I have a three year old and a one year old who constantly bite each other. It's horrible and I really don't know what to do. My 3 year old is the worst and is encouraging my 1 year old to do it. If one of them take a toy then the other bites. It happens every day. My 3 year old will bite me or my DH if he is throwing a tantrum. I've tried reasoning, ignoring, yelling (out of fright) giving him "some space" in his room. After it happens I calmly explain his much he hurts us and really upsets me but it doesn't work. He doesn't listen. I don't know what else to do.

    Does he perceive "some space" as a consequence? Do you tell him "Because you bit x you have to sit here for 3 minutes and miss out on the fun"?

    Ds doesn't bite and never has but as a consequence for bad behavior we take away toys. He goes in time out to 'miss out' on fun and we explain to him that because of his bad choices he is loosing a toy (usually whatever the favorite is at that time) always works in our house

    Following! My one year old bites me, no one else, just me. He bruised my arm the other day and I squealed and smacked his hand but he thinks it's funny. It's hard being so young. I try and catch him before he does it and say 'no biting' and move hi, away but he is still doing it.

    Yes, then he can only come out if he says sorry

    Same with us, it's really upsetting.
