Health Tip: Addressing Your Child's Biting Habit
-- From wanting attention to communicating their feelings, children bite for a variety of reasons, says the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
When addressing your child's biting habit, the association suggests:
- Watch your child to learn where, when and in what situations biting occurs.
- Pay attention to signals. Step in if your child seems ready to bite.
- Suggest appropriate ways to express strong feelings.
- Teach your child words for setting limits, such as "no," "stop," or "that's mine."
