Biting is a developmentally appropriate behavior often seen in toddlers and two year olds. As a child matures, gains self-control, develops problem-solving skills, and is able to verbalize their needs, they typically outgrow this behavior. Participants will discuss the reasons why a child bites and learn strategies to help them move through this stage of development.
