1 year olds I know they don't know what they are doing but how do you get them from not biting other kids from not hitting other kids I have tried the whole be nice thing and also tried the time out but I think that's more for older kids then a 1 year old being strun doesn't work either so I'm at a loss here I don't know what else to try let me know what has worked for you and your child hopfully it will work for me thanks

I totally agree with Patgalca. One year olds still don't know a thing about what they're doing. They bite a lot maybe because they're teeth have just came out and are still sore. I have a 9month old and oh boy he really does bite a lot. You can just tell your kid gently that it's not right to bite or hit people. At this point in time all you needed is patience and lots of it.

Actually, I don't really think I have an answer for you. I can tell you that my first child was a biter. She used to bite me a lot. Once I had my parents over for dinner and I was setting the table and she bit me on the butt. She actually drew blood. I showed her the bite mark and the blood and my mother scolded her very gently. "You don't do that to your mommy." I don't think she ever did it again. I know some people have said to bite them back and let them see what it feels like and then they won't do it anymore but I don't think that really works. Your child is only one years old so it is really hard for them to understand anything at this point. Hopefully he/she will grow out of it with time and guidance.
