I’m gonna get wholloped for this I’m sure- but when my dd bit me, I showed her where she bit, pointed to the same spot on her, and gently bit her back.
I don’t know if kids that small can equate their bitting with “I’m actually hurting that person” and the grimace or shout that follows- they often think it’s funny.
After I followed through with biting her back (GENTLY)- teaching her the fact that her biting hurts people and that she is hurting people- she stopped for me.
If you don’t want to bite her back, just ignore her. She’s probably equated her biting with some reaction from you. If you can stand her to bite you- and ignore her- that wouldn’t provide her with a reaction.
I don’t know if she would actually understand a lesser punishment like no tv, or quiet time in a corner for biting. But you could try that too if you have an aversion to a more ‘physical’ life lesson.
Or you can see if she grows out of it. There are a lot of bad habits that kids just grow out of. But waiting and watching for her to grow out of it, doesn’t mean ignoring the problem. If it gets worse, or if she never seems to get better- or if she starts biting strangers- then you’d need to step in again.
I recommend the book “Dare to Discipline” by James Dobson. It has some great real world advice and he is obviously a Christian family man.
