My 3 1/2 year old has taken to biting his older brother and sister, even me and hubby a couple of times recently. My elder two both bit a little when younger but this was quickly resolved by a sharp bite back from me (I know some of you may disagree with this - but its a sure fire solution! - well until recently) 3 1/2 yr old used to bite when he was 2 and grew out of this stage pretty quickly, but for some reason he has started again. We are thinking it's an attention thing - we recently got a puppy and maybe he feels like he needs to compete? Has anyone got any ideas on solving this?? I have already biten him 3-4 times (which I hate) have timed him out etc, but he really just doesn't seem to care.
