Hello. I need some advice on how to stop my 20 month old from biting, scratching, and pinching. We have tried telling her nicely that it hurts and that she must stop. We have tried "time-out". She isn't biting as much at day care any lonoger, because she seems to be able to communicate better, but the teachers still have to watch her closely. She has scratched my face up with the scratching and hitting. What can we do to get through to her?
