My 23 month old, who has lots of words, just is hard to understand, is very physical with his 3 1/2 year old brother. He hits, bites, and basically lives to tick his older brother off. I am concerned about the biting because he breaks through the skin. I feel like my 3 year old is bullied and I can't seem to stop the behavior. Any suggestions with a biting brother?

bite him back. not hard but just enough to make him cry. it gets through really quick.

This might sounds a little harsh but everytime he bites put a lemon , lime or anything sour in his mouth . he won't like it and will soon stop. he is old enough to associate the behavor with the punishment.
