In response to the previous writer. If your child is biting another child and is hurting her, you need to step in and say No firmly as well as point out to the biter: "Look, you are hurting her. Sarah is crying because you hurt her." Show the biter the ramifications of her behavior. I also think it is important to make the biter feel a bit of empathy for his victim and ultimately, remorse. A 2 year old can learn to "read" other children if taught to do so. Teaching a child to take note of other children's facial expressions will make him a more sensitive and thoughtful playmate and will lead to solid friendships. Saying " You shared your crayons with Eli. He is happy now and smiling. Look how happy you made him. That was very thoughtful". These things can be taught!

Apologize for your child
If your child hurts another child, you should apologize to the mother or caretaker and and the child, and let them know that you will be taking the matter seriously - you will teach your child how to refrain from this kind of behavior in the future. Then, at an appropriate time (privately is best), teach your child what he/she needs to know!

Hi, I understand the technique, however I have a question. What do you do when your child is biting another child, especially not your own, and it is hurting the child? As a parent, if another child was biting my child, I would not be too thrilled if the biters mother just said NO, and walked away. What do you do in the situation where it is hurting someone? thanks for your help
