Just read an email update on baby's behaviour. It reads...

Hello from BabyCenter! 
Does your toddler sometimes hurt other children? It's not surprising – making another child yell or scream seems like great fun at this age. The good news is that your toddler doesn't mean to inflict pain on his playmates. When he pulls another child's hair, he's either fascinated by the reaction it provokes or copying someone else's behavior. The best response is to gently but firmly stop the hurtful behavior and  redirect your child's attention. The more he gets a rise out of you, the more likely he is to repeat the behavior. 


True that. Sometimes when Josie bites after nursing, or hit/scratch us, we tend to raise our voice to pain. Guess we have to learn to tolerate the pain (very very painful lor, esp the biting) before we react. Gosh.
