I HAVE A DAUGHTER SHE IS 2YRS OLD WILL BE 3 COMING IN NOVEMBER, NOW SHE A HANDFUL I'M NOT GOING TO LIE ABOUT THAT. WHEN I AM NOT LOOKING ALL THE TIME TO KEEP N GOOD EYE ON HER SHE LIKES TO HIT PEOPLE N BITE YOUNGER THAN HER. I ALWAYS TELL HER NO IT'S NOT NICE IF U DO IT AGAIN U WILL HAVE TO SIT DOWN IN TIME OUT, WHEN IT DOES COME AROUND FOR THAT TIME SHE ALWAYS THROWS HER FIT, BUT THROWING HERSELF DOWN ON THE FLOOR IF THAT DOES NOT WORK SHE WILL GET UP N HIT ME OR HER YOUNGER BROTHER... I JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO REALLY. I DON'T TAKE HER OUT TO MANY PLACES BECAUSE THE WAY SHE BE ACTING...

Hi there,
She is looking for attention. I used to babysit a boy who bit all the time turned out it was because he didn't have the ability to put what he wanted into words so he would bite or hit till he got what he wanted.

It is a really dificult time when children go through the hitting or biting faze.

Consistancy is the key she needs to know it's not ok to hit or to bite. Time out is a good punishment and its great that you do that. I would not give her a warning for hitting or biteing I would pick up the child that has been hit or bit and comfort him / her but not for too long of your daugter will forget what she has done wrong and disipline wont work. Show her what she did. Say to her calm but firm look what you have done you have hurt (name) that is naughty then put her in time out for 2 minutes. say to her "I am putting you in timeout for hitting &/ or biting. Leave her there for her 2 minutes. If she throws a fit ignore it unless she is hurting herself. If she leaves her timeout spot put her back and say time out isn't over. If she moves again put her back but this time say nothing. When her 2 minutes is over go back and ask her to say sorry to the child she hurt.

I sure do hope this helps you out. Worked for me.

Its hard but my sons teachers told me when he bites, bite him back. That way he knows what pain he has inflicted on others. I have never done it though because he has never bit. But I will admit he is a brute and was constantly hitting other kids when we were over friends houses. I spanked his butt and made him sit down with me.. now he only hits when kids hit him first.
