When you find the answer can you message me....lol. I think it's just a stage, my 2 yr old does it when he is frustrated or being bullied. Smacking his hand works to immediately stop him, but doesn't stop him going back and doing it again. Good luck with the answer, I think its one of those things that goes on in every age and no one has yet found a cure. Good luck

I too have a 17 month old, although he doesn't bite he tends to scream at the top of his lungs, I think alot of the behaviour comes from frustration. They can't talk but they know what they want. I put my son in his cot and shut the door and leave him for about 2 minutes or until he stops screaming or crying. It has started to have an effect and it gives me a chance to calm down and deal with the frustration myself. GOOD LUCK!

It is the age for biting for sure. I think in the end kids kind of grow out of it. I'd say stick with time outs, and make sure your child knows that you dont approve of the biting. I work at a daycare centre and biting is a real problem with 1-2 yr olds but as i said they just seem to grow out of it

hey stace! was just about to post a question bout this! my boy is the same! smacking makes him laugh, naughty corner or bedroom is so not working and saying no (and trying to explain) is just a joke at the moment! wondering if its the age? love to know of any different ideas, am willing to try just about anything...

Its very hard isnt it! My 14 mth old boy is the same! Im about to start using "time out" or the "naughty chair". I sometimes give him a smack but he just thinks its funny, so i have come to the conclusion that smacking isnt going to work with him!! Is it all the time or does he just have moments???
