Addressing Biting in Positive Ways
May 21, 2021
An optimist laughs to forget; a pessimist forgets to laugh.
-Tom Nansbury

“As directors of early learning programs, we have to deal with a myriad of issues on a daily basis. One of the more frustrating things that comes up from time to time is biting,” writes Linda Crisalli in an article that forms the basis for a new Exchange Reflections“Addressing Biting in Positive Ways.” She goes on to explain:

“Biting is particularly problematic because it tends to elicit such a strong response from caregivers, parents and other children. Those new little teeth are sharp, and biting really hurts. Most young children have scratches and bruises most of the time which come and go without much concern, but bite marks are something else altogether because they are so easily recognizable. If a human bite breaks the skin, there are all the risks inherent with exposure to body fluids.”

The Exchange Reflections offers a number of positive strategies for addressing biting, and provides some food-for-thought ideas for discussion. We hope it provides support for this challenging issue.
