To stop your toddler from biting, you must always make sure that you are firm and consistent with them. Immediately after a biting episode, scold your child firmly. This is the best way to teach your child that biting is not allowed and that they will be punished if they do bite.

Biting because they are teething is one of the easier issues to deal with. For children in this situation, giving them an alternative item to bite is the best option. You can also make a homemade teething oil to help with the teething issue as well.

To stop a toddler from biting who is doing so out of anger, it is best to address the situation as it occurs. Set the child in timeout for an appropriate amount of time and always have them apologize after the timeout is over. You should also teach them alternative ways to express their anger and praise them when they avoid biting.
