This book was a godsend - both for the practical advice for parents, but because if the problem is happening at daycare, there's little a parent can do from work. This book is written from the point of view of childcare/daycare experts and provides practical advice for addressing the problem positively and gently from within the daycare (in partnership with parents).

This book is an excellent resource for toddler teachers and administrators. I am using the text in one of my trainings for teachers who work with toddlers and they have found it to be very beneficial.

Biting among toddlers is a complicated issue of safety, psychology, and childhood development that is of immediate and practical concern to any parent, daycare provider, or preschool teacher. Now in an expanded and updated second edition, "No Biting: Policy And Practice For Toddler Programs" by Gretchen Kinnell (Director of Education and Training, Child Case Solutions, Syracuse, New York) specifically layouts out practical and effective technique-building tactics and strategies for dealing with a child who bites. "No Biting" explains why toddlers bite, how to respond when biting occurs, and how to deal with ongoing biting incidents. Of special note is the advice on developing biting policies. Enhanced with illustrative sample letters to parents, policy statements and incident reports; "No Biting" also incorporates material on how language development and spatial awareness can lead to biting among toddlers. Highly recommended reading for anyone working with preschool aged children, "No Biting" is an informed and informative instruction manual that will provide sound and effective guidance for working with the parents of children who bite -- and are bitten.

This book was instrumental in helping us manage our toddler's biting problem. We learned that his daycare was using ineffective strategies to try and solve the problem. For example, the book describes that timeouts are typically not effective for toddlers.

Our solution was to switch to a new daycare whose philosophies meshed with those described in this book. The daycare believed that the biting was purely the problem of the daycare to manage, there wasn't anything wrong with the toddler or the parents, and the toddler would grow out of it. Since our child started at the new daycare, his biting has dropped to almost nothing.

I must have read thirty different web sites before I read this book, and this book had more information than any of them. If you are having problems with a biting toddler, I recommend this book.

The book is easy to read and gives lots of examples. In spite of the title, this is NOT a dry, humorless "policy and procedure" manual.

I'm having a problem with my daughter biting me and occasionally kids at school. This was the only book I could find that specifically addressed biting. I found it super easy to read and full of helpful tips. I really liked how it breaks down the various reasons kids bite. My only issue with the book is the tips on how to deal with biting don't exactly match the reasons they list earlier that kids bite.

This book is a new look on toddler biting issues. We feel like we have tried everything and were surprised to find that many of the things we've tried were addressed in the book. Lots of new ideas to try.

I bought this book b/c my daughter is on a 30 day probation from daycare due to biting. While this is geared towards daycare centers, I thought I'd read it first since they keep asking me what to do. She only bites at daycare so I'm going to now give this to my director to read.

This book is so amazing on covering all of the reasons a child could bite, how to handle the actual bite for both the biter and bitee, how to make the environment better for the biter to decrease the urge to bite and how to handle parents. I HIGHLY recommend this book for anyone working with toddlers in a daycare setting. It talks in great detail about how the size of the classroom (kids and dimentions) and things available in the room for sensory play, teething, etc.

Parents if you kid is biting at daycare, buy this book, read it and then pass it on to your center. You'll be glad you did!

I love how it recommends not having a policy that removes the child from daycare for biting b/c at this age they do not understand that they are doing something wrong and it's more up to the center to figure out how to help the child adjust.

I'm an infant toddler teacher, and this past year, found myself in the midst of my first biting outbreak. I had no idea what to tell parents and no idea how to stop it. I knew in my gut what was WRONG, but that's no help for what's right.

I read this book in one sitting. And afterwards I was able to have an honest discussion with all my parents and start (trying) to implement some changes. It gave me a better way to talk about it, explain how and why it happens - I love the phrase "unfortunately not unexpected" - and gave everyone involved some peace of mind, that things where going in the right direction.

I've kept referring to it as I have new kids and new situations arise and haven't had any problems since. This book is now my bible when it comes to biting.
