Course Description

How do you handle a child that bites another child? Why is this happening? What do you tell the parents of the child who has been bitten and the child who is biting? Where can you find classroom strategies that will work? You may feel frustrated when you have an epidemic of biting and understandably so! It is reported that humans are more physically aggressive between the ages of 24 and 30 months than at any other time in their lives. Biting can be a simple developmental phase as a result of undeveloped language skills. Biting can also be a sign of alarm or high frustration. Where biting is happening with older children or is frequent and intense significant steps need to be taken to deal with the underlying emotional cause of the biting.



After attending this course, participants will be able to state the relationship between child development and biting, describe different types of biting and identify practical strategies to utilize in their classroom. Participants will also create an action plan for an early education environment involving a biter and list effective communication strategies with families.
