It seems Harry's new phase (i hope to god its a phase) is to bite! Im disgusted with him every time he does it, i have no idea where he has had this new obsession from.
It seems every time we tell him no, and he doesn't like it, he will come and attempt to bite us, when i say attempt, its because he doesn't really close his mouth, he will come at you with his mouth open and we always tell him off each time he has done it, and explained how its very naughty to bite, and its not kind.
However, one day last week my brother was over and as he was leaving standing at the living room door Harry went over from no where and bit the material of my brothers jacket and again today my niece Evie was here, she picked up one of him toys to play and he told her 'no mine' i told him to share, and at that point Evie walked away, as she was walking into the other room, he followed her and bit her cardigan at the back, not her, just the material. I shouted at him and told him off again. He then went on to rub his belly and say 'yum yum'
So now im slightly worried its me hes had it from.
Im not a vampire, or anything like that, let me explain.
When were playing i sometimes say 'i could eat you up' and pretend to eat him arm and say yum yum. Is that where hes got it from? but why is he doing it in a nasty way, i don't no what else i can do or say to him to stop him.
My mom tells me a story about my auntie, who if she ever saw a child bite, be it her own or somone in the family, she would bite them back to stop them doing it!! (it was the 1960s) Now dont get me wrong i want Harry to stop biting but theres no way im going to be doing that!
Have you ever had a child bite others? how did you deal with it?
Please someone tell me its a phase and he will stop. Last thing i need is him doing it when he starts school to other children :(
Any advice would be fab!
