5. They're Showing Affection

Biting isn't necessarily a response to anger or frustration. Sometimes children bite when they are happy and excited, as well. This goes back to the same topic of children not knowing how to process strong emotions so they react by biting. My son tends to bite me when we are playing and he's all wound up. It's actually cute (he doesn't bite hard) but he still needs to know that it's not ok even during play time. Remember to be consistent and always tell a child "no biting"!
