I have a 22 month old who bites, he does so when he is over excited and angry. For the most part he had stopped, but today he bit a little boy at day care, and I am devastated. This is the first time he has ever bit another child, and he left a mark on the little ones back. How do you conquer this aggression. He also like to hit when things aren't going his way. My sitter and I are pretty consistent and tell him "NO, we don't hit/bite! It hurts, and then to time out!" but it doesn't seem to be working. I don't want him doing this, and I don't want him hurting other children. I know that this is completely normal toddler behavior, but I would really like for it to stop. Any suggestions........aside from biting him back! I don't believe in that!
