anyhoo DS, who has just turned one, has started biting. It's annoying but he understands NO so we have been working on it. However, my mother recommended that I put soap in his mouth when he bites. I gave her a huge side-eye when she said that. I don't like soaping in general but certainly not for a 12 month old.
Coincidentally my mom soaped one of my brother's almost weekly growing up and they have a terrible relationship. She was always harsher toward this brother in general.
Sorry if this offends you but I'm not a soaping fan at all.
