Default Does He Want To Get Bit??

One DCG has a history of biting, though she hasn't in about 2 months. I think she's outgrowing it. The only kid she ever bit was my 20-month old son. Well now suddenly, every time they want the same toy and a conflict begins, he puts his hand up to her mouth--wanting her to bite him! She hasn't yet since I've seen each interaction and stopped it quickly. But, come on kid!

I never over-reacted to her biting, I don't think. But I think he's doing this to get my attention. The last time he did it, I led him away from her and the toy.

What would you do??

I would just reiterate to him that we don't touch others on the mouth with our hands. And then make him move just like you are doing. I would also tell her that he shouldn't be doing that and she needs to walk away from him when he does. Maybe that will discourage him.

My kid? Id let him get bit. He would stop pretty quickly at almost 2.

Maybe you could preteach, get to them before they violate each other's space, help guide them with finding and using their appropriate words, before it all goes down.
I use this method, it's a lot or work at first until they get it down, but works like a charm in the end.
