id recommend take him 2 a bold corner and give him a time out let him know he did wrong and be firm.maybe seperate your daughter and son and if he misses her let him know when you unite them again he cant bite her.

Ahh a biter! My son was a terrible biter he would mainly do it to the little boy I was watching at the time. And it would be for no reason, he would just see the kid and it would just set him off and he would attack. It was so bad it left terrible bruises and almost broke the skin. I have worked in daycares for years and delt with this there as well. My main advice is put him in timeout everytime and tell him NO BITE! We don't bite!!! He will eventually catch on and grow out of this phase. Trust me this is the only thing that I have found that works, I even tried biting him back yeah bad idea!!! Don't do that not only did I feel guilty for doing it (I don't even spank my kids) but it didn't work. Also prevention don't give him the chance to do it, I know you can't be with him 24/7 but if you can try to and when you see him about to do it stop it right there and tell him once again NO BITE! And remove him from the situation. Consisty is the key in this terrible habit.
