My DD is almost 19 months and when she does not get her own way she will bite, hit, pinch or scratch. How do I stop this? Do they grow out of it?

My Dd only did this once and I softly bit her back. She never did it again. Then I explains how much it hurt her brother and mummy etc

I bought my daughter a book called "teeth are not for biting". We would read it together and would constantly reinforce that we do not bite, hit or scratch people because it hurts them and makes them sad. She was a little older than your little one, maybe 23-24 months but it worked, she hasn't done it since.

My daughter likes to hit.
I take her hand and hold it firmly and say
'When you hit mummy it makes me very sad'... etc etc. With a very sad face.
Honestly I don't know what the right answers are because my daughter doesn't seem to stop!

I've only experience biting with younger (10-13 months) children, so I'm not sure if it will help, but I used to put the child down, say "ouch, no biting" and walk away... for 3 mins after that they were not allowed my attention (I was nearby of course but not engaging). I would then come back, and as they approached me, say "no biting me, ok?" and go on as normal.
