So I was wondering If I can have some advice, My daughter is 2 years old, & she has been biting for over a year now, I take her away from the situation & sternly tell her that is not okay do NOT bite you friends, she only bite her friends..she has never bit an adult. everyone keeps telling me to bite her back, or tap her on the lips, or flick her in her face...Really? I just think that if I do that she will think, mommy can bite me, hit me etc. but I cant bite my friends..its kind hypacrtitical. She communicates really well too, shes starting to understand, but she used to act like she felt bad, but now shes tells "Dont bite fwiends." & trys to leave like she doesnt even care.

My nephew Jacob, who is currently six years old, he gets into trouble at school for bullying. Then He come home and punch me in the arm. He is almost as big as me. [I am 5 ft 6 in and 130 lbs. He is 4 ft 11 in and 90 lbs.] I had to, even though I didn't want to, punch him in the arm and pin him down. But! He is a boy and has issues with women. But the way I was taught is that you are not going to learn to stop bullying unless someone bigger and bad-er comes along. But since your little girl is just biting. I bit my dad when I was little. He bit me back. I didn't do it again. I do not know what all you have done to get her to stop. But if you have just said and said and said. I personally would start physically start doing something. Taking away toys or dessert. Maybe there's more to the story of why she is biting and have a conversation of why she think she has to bite them. I am not telling you how to raise your little girl. But let me tell you a story. When I was little. My sister who is five years older then me...She got all the attention. Plus my parents worked and I didn't really have friends and I had really bad anger problems. Biting turned into kicking, kicking turned into bullying, bullying got me tons of trouble in day care and elementary, being that upset everyday as a kid messed me up badly I had NO friends I was a loner. I am not saying this will happen.....but my point being is that find the meaning behind why she is doing that. There's always a meaning for a child to do that. Maybe seen it on TV? Maybe mad at one of her friends? Maybe something. But that's all my advice I can possible give you. :)

You are paying them to look after your daughter. So you'd advise them that they need more staff for the kids. As far as your daughter goes about an attention. If she feels left out tell the teachers that. Just talk to her see if she feels left out and see if it is out home or at school. [i do not know how the home life is and what you two do when together] But if she is acting out over attention then if you think you two are not spending enough time together then spend two hours with her when you get home. It makes a big difference. And if it is an attention problem at school then as I said you are paying them to watch your daughter they HAVE to listen to your advise.
