Schedule considerations may be made to prevent anxiety and other feelings which may lead to biting.
Toys and provided materials
Providing ample toys for children in the classroom can help prevent common toy stealing or boredom biting behaviors.
Create a safe environment
Along with following licensing requirements for safety in the classroom, encourage a positive and safe environment for all children.
Avoid major change
Changes can upset a child’s sense of security which can lead to frustration, anxiety and other strong emotions that may trigger biting.
Be sure that materials and activities are developmentally appropriate and engaging for all children so that children are not bored or frustrated which can lead to biting.
