No Biting: Solutions and Support for Toddler Programs, 3rd Edition
This guide offers solutions and support for those working in toddler programs to dealing with toddlers who bite, focusing on a problem-solving perspective that takes into account developmental factors, treats each toddler as an individual, and looks at the role of the caregiving environment. It discusses why toddlers bite, how to respond, how to help the child who is biting and the child who is being bitten, and how to develop a plan to deal with repeated biting; talking to parents and other caregivers; and creating policies about biting. This edition has new and updated contents, including a chapter on working with parents, a new observation and reflection form, a new guide to consulting with toddler programs for infant-toddler specialists, a new training curriculum for directors or education coordinators to use with staff, and examples of forms, sample letters, and policies. Kinnell, a former special education teacher, preschool teacher, and adult education teacher, trains people who work with young children. (Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
