Elevating Early Childhood

What to Do About Kids Who Bite?

Oct. 3, 2022

Hello everyone and welcome back to a brand new episode of Elevating Early Childhood.

Now, a quick warning before you start listening, this episode’s got a bit of a bite to it (pun intended)!

This, friends, is because today, we’re discussing children who bite.

Most younger preschool classrooms have at least one bitey kid, and it can be pretty difficult for teachers to deal with those types of situations.

Why is the child biting? How can you deal with their behavior? And most importantly, how can you handle the child bitten (or, yourself, if you’ve been the victim…)?

To answer these questions, I’ve invited an early childhood expert!

Her name is Dr. Carolyn Bobb-Green, she is the founder of Training U To Succeed, and today, she’s here to teach us how we can deal with bitey kids (and all the consequences that come with their sharp teeth).

Are you ready?

Let’s dive in!
