Biting: when big sis bites little bro
Many of children go through a biting phase at some point. An urbanMama emails her situation and asks whether anyone else has experiences to share:
My 3yo daughter just started biting her 15mo brother. (They are almost the same size so she used to just push him away but now there's only 4" and 4lbs separating the 2 of them.) It usually happens because she gets frustrated because he's in her face and instead of using her words, she chomps down hard. In the last 3 days, shes bitten him at least 4 times hard enough to leave teeth marks that I can still see 3 days later. How do I get her to stop? She's never bitten anyone before and nothing has changed recently in our daily lives.
