vindication

Child psychologist says that biting is a normal stage. Not a good stage, and not something to tolerate or overlook, but a normal stage. Most, she says, if not all, kids go through it for a short period. She suggested immediate time outs (we do that) and coordinating with the school to ensure that we are addressing the issue the same way.


Bah.

I'm also buying 1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2-12 at Lis' suggestion.

And I need a potty training book. For me, not for him. Suggestions of books or online reading welcome. I don't promise to use your proven method (every kid is different, whether you'd like to acknowledge that or not, so not all solutions are appropriate for all kids). I have no interest in potty training this kid right now. But he's practically begging to use the potty so I can't put it off any longer.
