When my daughter did this we pinched and bit back. You don't have to do it hard but when she would bite someone we would bite her. Only took about twice and she learned she did not like it.

i used time out which my son HATES but this didnt fully wor. there was a boy in my sons class who was biting him & my son started biting family members. once he did this... it might sound bad but... i pintched & bit mine back. not hard, just enough to make him think about it & that it did hurt & if he did it again i would gradually increase the pressure. he realized that it hurt to have it done to him so it must hurt for other people to have it done to them.
