Looking for advice and suggestions for a friends 2 1/2 year old little girl who has recently developed a nasty habit of biting others in her day care class. Time out is not working. Goes in time out - comes right out - goes back to biting. She is NOT a difficult child....just a biter. (at this point) When Dude was her age and bit me? My pediatritian suggested strongly I bite him back. That was the last time we saw that pediatritian. I asked a girlfriend and she said she would give three swats on the hiney. I'm just thinking there has to be better solutions than spanking and biting. Any help will be copied and sent via email. Thanks in advance.
