Biting is a normal part of childhood development. Young children bite for many reasons - teething, frustration, or tantrums. Children eventually outgrow this habit when they grow older.
How to stop biting?
Prevent your child from biting you or someone else. You may follow the following tips:
Even with your best prevention efforts, biting incidents might still occur. When your child bites, firmly let your child know that this behavior is not acceptable by saying, 'No. We don't bite!' Explain that biting hurts the other person. Then remove your child from the situation and give the child time to calm down.
You might have heard from other parents that if your child bites you, bite your child back. This isn't good advice. Children learn by imitation. If you bite your child, the child will think that this behavior is acceptable and will be more likely to do it again. The same goes for hitting a child for biting.
Biting Injury Treatment
The first thing to do for any biting injury is to wash the area with soap and water. Even little teeth can break the skin. If the bite is bleeding and the wound appears to be profound, call your child's doctor. The bite may need medical treatment, which could include antibiotics or a tetanus shot, or both.#toddlerbehaviour #parentinggyaan
