Responding to Your Child’s Bite (Spanish)

Many toddlers and young children bite. Developmentally, most toddlers don?t have enough words to express how they are feeling. They primarily rely on sounds and actions to communicate what they are thinking and feeling. Biting is one of the ways toddlers express their needs, desires, or feelings. This handout provides information on why children bite, what to do and what not to do, and when to seek professional help.
