Understanding and Preventing Toddler Biting

"A biting incident creates distress for everyone. A child gets hurt. Caregivers feel shocked and often helpless. Parents, hearing that their child got bitten or did the biting, get angry. Caregivers find themselves caught in the middle. The more they try to explain, the more defensive they become."

Toilet Learning

"Toilet learning takes teamwork between parent, child, and the child care provider.  Success depends on patient, understanding adults and a child who is physically, intellectually and emotionally ready.  Between the ages of 18 and 30 months, a child begins to show the readiness signs."
