I have the same question, except my son only bites his little sister. It can be about anything, she may take a toy, she might just be in his way anything and he will bite her. We've done the biting back, spanking, standing in the corner, pushing his head down (this was when he bit us), talkign to him, its gotten to the point where he will do it constantly to her through out the day and the only way to get him to stop is to smack his mouth and tell him no that it hurts her. He has bitten her so hard before he pulled her skin off her back leaving her with scabbed over bite marks, hes left her with bruses from biting, and has even tore holes into her long sleeves shirts when he's bitten her. She used to bite back, but he's turn around and punch her mostly in the back or stomach or hits her in the face. Most of the time its un provoked on her part and when she does 'provoke it' such as taking one or two cars to play with he gets mad and goes after her, and she runs to me or dad to rotect her. I'm getting very sick of this as he is 3 yrs old now and bites intentionally, not when she has done something to him a majority of the time. Then when she bites back,( yesterday she bit him because he climbed into the chair she was sitting in, and he had kicked her in the face) he starts to cry, how can I stop him from constantly biting her? Its getting extreamly annoying, and hes been doing this for over a year and a half.
