She bit her sister again tonight. Sigh. I just don't know what to do. The thinking chair (time out) doesn't seem to be a deterrant for her at all. I know she is off kilter because we are leaving tomorrow for vacation for 6 weeks, but I hate that her little sister gets the brunt of it.
My DD was using biting as an attention getter. She bit a LOT around 3yo, possibly new-sibling related. I started really downplaying my reactions. I established the consequences and started administering them without talking to her. I would simply take the baby away or ignore the teeth in my arm (yes, I did!) She would say "Mommy, I bited you" so I knew I was on the right track. I know ignoring isn't a very Unconditional Parenting strategy but I had a newborn and biting is soooo unacceptable that I just went for the quick fix.
