Anyone got any usefull tips...... I have a new littleone (24 months) who is biting everything and I mean everything, other children, me, my dog, toys, doors, furniture and thinks it is very verry funny....

I've never had to deal with a biter before and my own children never did it..I've spoke to parents and they are of the 'oh well....' brigade....

Anything to stop him????

I had a biter once - he used to bite me and his mum from a very young age (nobody else!) but then did bite another child here and at a toddler group (in his mums care then). We dealt with it the same way - a firm "NO" with very cross face and lots and lots of cuddles for the injured party. If he's biting toys take them away. I also made him stay by my side constantly so he couldnt play whilst I made snack or lunch and had to sit in the kitchen with me - basically where I went he went. He soon got the idea. It is a stage some children go through but they do need to learn that its not acceptable.
