my son has been biting for a while now we've tried to distract him with books and toys and told him off but he still bites. He stopped for a while but now he's started again but only one little girl in nursery its gettin to be a problem now cos the little girls parents are gettin upset by it. its not like he's angry, he's the nicest little boy and wen he bites its not in a nasty way. its just really upsetting. any ideas?

I hate to say it but the only was I could break my son of biting was to pinch him back when he bit me. I pinched him just hard enough that he got the message that when he bites it hurts. It took only about 2 days before he stopped. I've never had a problem with it since.

I think you need to tell him that if he bites another person, that there is going to be consequences for his actions, even if it's not out of anger, he still needs to be punished with time out's or maybe taking away some of his favorite toy's. good luck
