lol No... sorry, there's no such thing as a bad baby. He is a TODDLER. A perfectly normal sounding toddler that simply needs to learn that this behavior is unacceptable.

Could you take your caps lock off? That's equal to yelling on the internet. It's rude and obnoxious.

You are welcome to your opinion, but so am I... and I stated that. No reason for you to argue w/ me simply because I think hitting your kid for hitting, biting, pinching, etc... is stupid.

I AGREE DOVE BUT AT THE SAME TIME I WASN'T REFERRING TO SPANKING HIM TO HURT HIM. EVERYONE IS ENTITLED TO THEIR OWN METHODS OF PARENTING, WITH THAT BEING SAID I ENCOURAGE SPANKINGS.... NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT.. IN MY EYES ANYWAY... YES, I WONDERED OF HE MAY BE EXPERIENCING SOME SORT OF ANGER ISSUES AND GIVING HIM A DIFFERENT METHOD TO COPE AND DIRECT HIS ANGER WOULD BE MOST BENEFICIAL. BUT IF HE'S JUST A BAD BABY (WHICH THEY DO EXIST) I'D SPANK HIM. SPANKING YOUR CHILD IS BY NO MEANS SAYING IT'S OK TO HIT, IT'S SAYING I LOVE YOU BUT I WILL NOT TOLERATE THIS BEHAVIOR... ;)

And hitting him for it will show him it's ok to hit....

If my child were biting her child and leaving marks on him.... I would call the police or CPS on her. That is absolutely unacceptable.

Why is he biting? Is he teething... or angry? If he's teething... take care of that issue... give him something acceptable to chew on. If he's angry... teach him an acceptable way to behave. You can't teach a child what NOT to do... by doing it. That just reinforces that what he is doing is OK because the adults in his life do it too.

Biting and pinching are both very normal toddler behaviors that are easy to correct w/ time, patience, and teaching them what to do instead... People need to stop thinking that biting and hitting their kids are good ways to teach them anything.

I DON'T THINK BITING HIM BACK TO LEAVE A MARK IS A SOLUTION BUT HE NEEDS REDIRECTION TO UNDERSTAND THAT BEHAVIOR IS CERTAINLY NOT ACCEPTABLE... I'M OLD SCHOOL.. A GOOD OLD SPANK ON THE BOTTOM OR ON HIS HANDS AND TELLING HIM NO AND WHY NOT SHOULD HELP.. BUT I DISAGREE WITH BITING HIM AND LEAVING MARKS..IT'S ALMOST CONTRADICTING.... YOU ARE SHOWING HIM TO BITE
