Biting Lame!! United Kingdom 123 posts
20th Jul '13

My son is 16 months and he's started biting people mainly his sister and his grandad I don't know what it is about those two but he seems to like biting them more he bit my daughter so hard that it drew blood my daughter never went through the biting stage so I have no idea how to control it
I've told him not to do it I've put him in time out as hard as that is with a 16 month old but he's still biting
People have said bite him not hard but so he knows what it feels like, I don't really want to bite my son
Any tips on how to get him to stop?

DON'T bite him that won't do anything but make you look and feel like an ass. I told my son no, and swatted his hand.

I would NOT bite him.



Have you tried the "naughty chair"? Only put him on it for a thirty to sixty seconds.

Thats what we use as time out he sits on the naughty step for a minute but he just gets up and will do it again

Thanks anyway :)
I'll try asking my daughter if she does anything to him he could be biting her back out of defense his Grandad on the other hand as bad as this sounds I couldn't really care if he bit him or not

Try to stop him before he does it. Say "OUCH. No biting. Biting hurts. Don't hurt me/sister/Grandma etc". Then show him how to be nice, take his hand and run it over the "owie" and your arm/face etc and say "be nice. Gentle touches only", or you can have him kiss the "owie" and say the same thing. Then just redirect him to something else. Sometimes kids are just exploring and not trying to hurt, you could hand him something else that he can chew on if you think that's the case.

The one and only time I bit anyone as a child, I was bit back. I never bit anyone again. - I have a 15 month old who has also started biting, I bite her back.



She has only done it twice.

I feel like if I bite him back it can go two ways either he'll stop or he'll think its okay

Hopefully, it will make him realize it does not feel good and he will not want to do it to other people.



That is how I look at it.

I was raised with that ''don't do it unless you want it done to you'' type of Southern parenting.
