Help! My 17 month old will NOT stop biteing me. He doesn’t bite anyone else just me, but I am bruised all over from it. Sometimes he doesn’t just bite and let go, he bites on and shakes his head like a pit bull! How do I stop him?

First- tell him no very strongly. It's okay if it scares him a little. Tell him that we do not bite. If he's biting your hand or arm, push it into his mouth (not too hard) but it makes it harder to bite. Do not give him praise when he stops. Just go about your buisness. you can also put a timeout in there. Everytime he bites.



"NO! We do not bite" into Timeout.



Good Luck!
