Parent Handouts On Toddler Biting
Time out: Might want to try this: think of the great novel "crime and punishment" http://goo. Gl/vpb8s and give your child a time-out for misbehavior. Http://goo. Gl/vcydo.
I was wondering about tips to cut cravings for nicotine w/o NRT because my parents are making me quit cold turkey me biting under 18?
See below: Consistent response to biting. Every time your child bites, he/she needs to be told “no don't bite.” You can even place in time out for a minute. Don’t bite back. It can take up to 2 to 3 weeks of consistent intervention to change the behavior.
May be nothing.: As children develop they may find a variety of ways for things to work better for them. The worst case would be if the parent they preferred absent to be huring them in some way-need to consider. The behavior may just mean they like a simpler environment, or that there might be prolems they pick up on between the 2 parents. Or could be misinterpreted behavior and not be wanting parent absent.
3 rules: 1. Never tell him to do something like "eat your dinner" or anything that he can control himself. 2. If you tell him to do something e.g. Put your toys away because I want to set the table, give him a reason and time to do it. 3 if you have threatened a punishment (or something good) never go back on your word. Make sure that you can enforce it. Set precept and example.
Yes: I agree with dr webb in general but find some kids need a "hot" moment. Kids don't understand hot untill they have touched something hot & put the word & sensation together. Kids who bite don't necessarily understand pain is inflicted. An immediate one time bite from a parent often opens them to the concept of pain & bad choice. Do it within 30 sec or the kid won't understand & never break the skin.See 1 more doctor answer
Fingernail biting: This is very difficult to accomplish until the child is old enough to care about their personal appearance as it is usually an unconscious behavior. The good news it rarely has any health consequences other than the very occasional infection of the cuticle area (paronychia) which is easily treated.
Time outs: Every time your child bites, he should immediately and consistently be put in timeout.See 1 more doctor answer
Biting you???: If he/she is biting people it may be serious. If there are other symptoms he/she may be in the autistic spectrum. Get medical advice locally.
Neg or positive: There are two ways to change behavior, negative and positive. For positive reinforcement we use rewards for any designated amount of time the child goes without biting. For negative we make nail biting a bad experience. One example is having your child soak his/her hands in vinegar. Then is tastes bad when they bite. It is up to you which you feel your child will best respond to.
What do you mean?: "biting" is an unusual term to describe stomach distress--what symptoms are you indicating? Also, by "stomach" do you mean a particular abdominal location, or are your child's symptoms meal-related? Happy to help if we know what you're asking.See 1 more doctor answer
Maybe: How old is your child? A young child who is starting to bite may not realize that it hurts people and animals. If you child is old enough to know this, do check with your child's doctor. Your child could be acting out from a variety of issues- stress, changes in the household, illness, or anxiety.See 1 more doctor answer
Is it possible for a 2 year old child to cause bruising to their own face. Finger sized in a circle shape matching on both cheeks from biting h on the?
Biting what??: It is quite common to get circular bruising marks from suction with a object like a bottle top or cup, etc. But it would be difficult for a 2 year old to cause bruising on their face by biting them selves. Bites by other children are common at this age, and usually will show the individual teeth marks.
My toddler gets canker sores in his mouth when he was ill he had like three is it possible for him to have herpes 1 even if his parents dont?
Yes: Getting mouth sores does not have to be genetic. Herpes is a virus that can be picked in many places. Could be source of sores. Canker sores are opportunistic or triggered by something like foods. Just body reaction. These all can more likely occur when ill, defenses down.See 1 more doctor answer
My parents told me I had spinal meningitis when I was a toddler. It was in the 1973 my blood work as an adult did not show antibodies. Misdiagnosis? D
Meningitis: Spinal meningitis was a "catch all" phrase in those days. It doesn't necessarily mean it was the kind of meningitis that would show antibodies later on. As long as there are no side effects fromyour illness as a toddler, it is inconsequential what type of meningitis you had. You can obtain the hospital records, if it is important to you. :)See 3 more doctor answers

Where Things Stand:: Treatment of choice = habit reversal training which involves a) awareness training; b) training in substituting behavior that competes w/ nail-biting; & c) social support. But hrt has not proven sufficient by itself. Treatment tends to be more successful/enduring when combined cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance & commitment therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy &/or psychopharmacology.See 2 more doctor answers
She has her ways!!: The female mosquitoes suck blood – the males do not. Thus the female's mouth is more specialized with a proboscis that touches our skin almost as soon as she lands. Her sharp mandibles & multiply bladed maxillae pierce the skin as she moves her head back and forth.
