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.
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 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.
