My daughter is 2 1/2 right now and whenever I tell her no or she doesn't get her way, I have recently caught her biting herself. It was even so bad once that it left bite marks in her arm. What can I do about this or what is the best way to make her understand that she should love her self and not to do that? Please note: My daughter is in the process of being checked for Aspergers and is on her Final evaluation. She already sees 3 disibility specialist. I have tried to show her to give her self a hug or blow kisses to self in the mirror, but now when she hits herself or bites herself she will do it for a few seconds and then look at me and laugh and then hug herself and say love. Any suggestions?
