The Biting Solution: The Expert's No-Biting Guide for Parents, Caregivers, and Early Childhood Educators

For childcare providers, nannies, and parents dealing with a child who bites other kids—and possibly adults, this practical guide by Lisa Poelle, M.A., provides realistic advice, including

* a script to follow immediately when a child bites
* seven questions to help you assess why a child bites
* what adults need to know about child development and temperament to prevent biting
* crucial information about child development and temperament that help you prevent biting

Poelle, who has spent 25 years working in child-care and preschool environments, explains that young children who bite are not "bad," and they do not need discipline. Instead, they may be grieving, over-stimulated, under-stimulated or suffering because of tension in the home.
