4. They're Seeking Attention

Children get bored really easily. They almost always need some sort of activity to keep them going and usually that involves adult or other children's affection and attention. When my son doesn't get enough of my attention on the days we're super busy, he will act out in either bad or possibly destructive behavior. Biting is a common behavioral issue when children are just simply seeking attention and a reaction from a loving adult. While bad behavior shouldn't be ignored, it should be understood that possibly the child just needs more of your time and intentional engagement. I've noticed a world of difference in his behavior towards myself and others when we are actively playing together during the day.
