If your child bites will it stop them if you bite them back (not hard)
Hi, thanks for asking the question. It is not a good idea to stop an aggressive behavior with aggression. If this is a young child who is under 2, say "no biting" and distract child with a toy or snack. If it is an older child say "no biting" and give a few minute "time out for biting".
