Babies and young children use biting and hitting for many reasons. It can be a way of exploring the world, or showing boredom or frustration. Sometimes, it’s how they’ve learned to get what they want.
Seeing your child bite or hit others or you can be upsetting, but try to stay calm. Remember to encourage the behaviours you want to see more of.
