Well my DS is almost 13 months and as the title suggests has just starting tantrums. He starts crying and flapping his arms and drops to the floor pushing his face in.
What really upsets me is he has started biting. It started just out of no-where the other day and I change my tone and body language and say 'No T - we dont do that cause thats not nice."
Problem is he really doesnt understand and he starts day care in 2 weeks and I am really stressed he is going to do this to another child.
Did anyone have this problem at such a young age - any suggestions?

I have twin 14 month old boys. About a month ago one started biting and the other pulls hair when they are frustrated, cranky or not getting there own way. It is completely normal for children at the age to lash out in some way as its their only way to communicate their feelings! All you can really do is tell them not to and why when they do bite or try and work out times when they are more likely to bite and stop them when you see them going to bite. Some kids get the message quickly and stop, others it takes a lil longer.
I worked in child care for years and this was all we could do as well! Let the child care centre know its a issue and they will try and keep on eye out to redirect him when his getting cranky, upset, frustrated.
Hope all works out for you hun

Yes same here. He's now 19 months and still biting and at daycare also. I feel horrible but they say it's age appropriate. Giving up the dummy has helped a bit though. Try not to stress. Don't make a big fuss. Just say no and don't give it any more attention than that otherwise the negative behaviors is getting attention.
