my 3 1/2yr old son, just recently started displaying a biting behavior toward his preschool teachers...never to kids! it didn't happen everyday but within the last week more frequent if he was not compliant with them. he does have an articulation disorder in which he does have a frustrating time getting out what is making him upset or frustrated and has used biting as an outlet. his preschool has since asked him to leave :(. i am at wits end on how to keep him from biting the teacher when he is mad at them. he never displays this behavior outside of school so i don't know how to help him or give advice to assist the teachers in dealing with him. i'm sad he was dismissed as i'm not sure how that helps the child. has anyone else ever had to deal with this or know of anyone? the most I get is he's going through a phase or its natural for that age...i just don't know how long it's going to last for nor do i want to keep enrolling him in different schools because of it?
