Why do some kids bite? My son never bit anyone but my 16mth old daughter bites her brother &...
myself, is this a sign of any future behavioural issues?
All 3 of my boys did this. It's to be expected especially in a child around 1 year of age when they're in the teething stages. Babies don't understand at that age that it's painful. In most cases it's probably just another type of communicating for them, or their way of playing. It really shouldn't cause worry for future behavioral problems unless they're older and understand that it's wrong and hurts. When they do it out of aggression in other words. The best thing to do for me was a firm NO, and maybe a time out. It really hurts a baby's feelings to hear that tone of voice or to be sat in time out. Don't give the biting any positive attention, like laughing because they'll take it to mean they can get good attention this way. Also, be careful not to even play bite with babies because they can't tell the difference from that and them wanting to play bite someone else.
I was so excited to answer this since I had two bad bitters. I think that holyjeans30 said it all. Nice Answer! My children are older now and trust me bitting is not a bad sign for any future behavior, it's just a bit of a stressor.
My youngest son went through a biteing stage but he is three and a half now and thankfuly grown out of it.
Children often bite when they are very young because they may be frustrated and having difficulty communicating effectively. Biting gets them attention, and this phase usually ends when they are able to speak.

My favorite story to tell is how my 5 year old poured an entire bottle of dish detergent in the back of our toilet "just because" and when he flushed a few times it spilled foam all over our carpet. It was hard to clean up, but well worth the laughs.
