Does your toddler go around biting other people? Many young kids bite for reasons ranging from frustration to curiosity.

Prevent your child from gnawing his peers with these suggestions from the American Academy of Pediatrics:

  • Provide teething toys if your child is experimenting with biting.
  • Give plenty of positive attention for appropriate behavior.
  • If your child is a biter, stay close to him when others are around, and intervene early before conflict occurs.
  • Help your child identify his feelings.
