My 19 month old daughter started biting around 10 months old.. She has never bitten anyone else, besides her only cousin.(Boy, 9 months apart) He has always been somewhat of a bully towards her and I always thought it was her defending herself because she wouldn't push, shove, hit, ect.. But now she does push and shove, ect and bites too! She has left countless numbers of horrible bruises on her cousin and now has started biting her Grandma and me! She does it when she is mad and doesn't get her way and we're not sure how to break her of it! Her daddy(my hubby) has been deployed overseas since she was 9 months old and she has had a rather difficult time with it... Not sure if the deployment has a role in her biting, but I just need advise on how to break her of her bad habit!
