okay biting toddler...

My toddler bites herself (and sometimes others) when she gets mad or upset. How can I teach her that biting isn't the solution? She seems to be constantly teething as well...

      oh my goodness how I can relate! My oldest was a biter! i used to babysit children and she would bite this poor little boy! i felt so bad! i think she did it out of anger and jealousy more than teething ... eventually she did stop. but at that age it is hard to reason with her as to why she shouldn't bite. i never had an issue with my other 2 children !

        You have to tell her in a nice calm way that biting isn't nice and you can pull her back from you or anyone else before she goes to biting.

          My oldest bit for the looongest time. We were going through a stressful period in our life and I found she would bite herself as a sort of outlet for all the feelings inside. She would bite me, her brother, her friends, her friends' parents, just about anyone too. I tried absolutely everything I could think of, but she just had to decide to stop. One thing that seemed to help the most was putting some tabasco sauce or some sort of hot sauce on a spoon and sticking it in her mouth when she bit someone.
