    Dads and Moms in hubpages, what do you do when your 2 year old bites you hard?

    talking to the child proved useless as she bites you again.

    This has actually happened to me with all five of my kids!! After I finish screaming out loud (Ouch!), I spank their hand and say :No, no, no, you don't bite. Usually works after a couple of times....I'm still nursing wounds though. (Going through it with the little angel you see in the picture)

    I have 2 year old daughter and she used to bite us when she was 1 year old. The trick is, the moment she used to touch her teeth to our skin, we used to scream. So, she might have thought that the biting is already done and she will remove her teeth immediately.

    Well, my answer may not be liked, but I say bite back. My sons have only bitten me once. They went through this phase of "what are these new things in my mouth? I wonder how strong they are?" Don't get me wrong, when I did the biting, it was only to show them that their teeth can hurt others. After that, catching them in action and saying "no, not nice" was enough.

    This is what worked for us.

    I think most of us parents have been there...OUCH. Every approach so far seems to work and each child is different. Most likely showing the child how much it affects you by walking away or not giving in will get them to see that this is not a positive act.

    Often it's simply frustration. Sometimes I wish I could bite people. LOL

    I guess my first response would be to bite back after that my taser comes to mind. Maybe it is a good thing that I've never been a parent.
    You have to admit that the taser would be remembered at least until 20 or so and it would be the last time it bit me.

    My infant bit me hard nursing and I cried out quite loudly and cried. When she realized she hurt me, she never did it again.

    It happened to me with both of my kids. Now that they're 15 and 12, it's funny to think that we ever had that issue. All the advice listed here is perfect. At 2, they are just trying to understand how the world works. Biting is something they need to understand not to do.
