My daughter is 18 months old she is constantly biting and pinching. How do I get her to stop?

My daughter is 3 years old, and still bites from time to time herself, she is actually playing half the time, because she is at the age of pretending to be certain animals. However, I still rather her not do it, to be honest I have tried spraying vinegar on what she likes to bite, including myself sometimes or LIGHTLY popping her on the mouth and taking privileges away. And for the pinching, I don't necessarily agree with this, but if you believe the saying "an eye for an eye", maybe you should pinch her back, so she knows it doesn't feel good, and she shouldn't do it either. I am not saying that any of this will work, if you don't like my advice, then by all means don't use it, I am just trying to help.

mine use to do that. sadly only way he would stop is after biting a bigger kid getting popped in the face in response from that same kid. not a situation i would suggest but maybe a being exposed socially to other children who do not like to be bit or pinched will help.
