DS is driving me up the wall with his constant biting. I've tried everything I can think of, short of biting or spanking him, but nothing is working. So I am breaking down and looking to buy a book on GD (I will admit I am working on my temper b/c sometimes I do get pushed to the edge. I do not hit him, however. I set him in a safe spot, close myself in the bathroom, and scream until I start laughing hysterically. Yes, I might be a bit looney at times <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: ). Anyway, I have looked through the list at the top of the forum but there are so many books to choose from. So tell me- if you had to buy one book when dealing with a 15 mo (specifically the biting issue but I'm sure others will arise too) what would you get? TIA!!!

I'm sorry I don't have much advice for you but I wanted to try and help.<br>
I found this:<br><a href="http://www.keepkidshealthy.com/parenting_tips/ep/biting.html" target="_blank">http://www.keepkidshealthy.com/paren...ep/biting.html</a><br><br>
When toddlers bite other children<br>

"Note: this advice should not be used as a substitute for medical opinion or treatment. If illness or pain are suspected, always consult with a doctor.

I haven't thouroughly read the above pages or any of the books on the list but they looked like they might help.<br><br>
about the bathroom screaming how has this seemed to effect the situation -is it usually brought on by biting or other activities? I'm sorry if I'm being intrusive - I'm trying to get a better idea of the situation as a whole. I know that when I get upset ( even if it has nothing to do with her ) my DD gets riled up into a fit and that can't be helpful in an already stressful situation.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2">
