Is biting common in children?
Many children between the ages of 14 months and 3 years
go through a biting phase that usually disappears when they
can express their needs and feelings through words. Parents
who stay calm, respond appropriately, and encourage children
to express themselves with words instead of biting can help
guide children through this phase.
