BITING

BITING

One out of ten toddlers and two-year olds do “it”.

Good morning this is your Parenting Moment brought to you by Legacy Academy.

If you haven’t guessed, “it” is biting.

If your child bites don’t bite them back! Remain calm and think about what the

child experienced just before the incident.

Understanding why children bite can help deter this behavior and teach them positive

ways to handle their feelings and express themselves. Does the child always bite

the same individual? Is the biter exhausted or hungry? Are they trying to express

themselves verbally? Are they feeling frustrated?

When biting happens, intervene immediately but calmly. Patience and consistency

can guide you and your child towards self-control and away from biting.

That’s your Legacy Academy Parenting Moment. Find out more about the Legacy

Academy family of school and give your little legacy an opportunity of a life time.
