Biting

Biting is using your teeth to hurt someone.

Biting someone can cause painful injuries. It can also be dangerous as bites can spread nasty infections (germs).

Biting is a very unkind thing to do and makes people upset or angry. Adults get cross with children who bite.

When someone has been unkind to us it can make us feel very angry and upset. This is OK. We may feel like we want to bite them. That is not OK.

Biting is a horrible thing to do and can be dangerous. It is never OK to bite someone.

Creating social stories with photos or picture can often help too. This example is available in a printable format below.
