Got a biter? Lots of help in Parenting Press book

"Manage a biter" is the title of Pregnancy and Newborn magazine's interview with Lisa Poelle, author of The Biting Solution: The Expert's No-Biting Guide for Parents, Caregivers and Early Childhood Educators.

A feature of the May issue (see page 26), the article quotes Poelle as saying that biting is often a toddler's "go-to" response to any stress. She goes on to provide several suggestions for handling tots who bite.

Library Journal also offers a rave review of The Biting Solution:

"Earnestly recommended. . .Poelle has a wealth of professional early childhood education experience that she brings to this topic, and here she gives parents and educators a step-by-step look at the biting tendency: what is normal child development, why some children bite, case studies of biters, and forms and worksheets for progressing through the problem.

"VERDICT: Child-care workers, parents, and colleges and universities with early childhood development programs will all benefit from this text. A timely and underrepresented contribution to the literature. Poelle should be commended for providing solid solutions to what feels like the 'crime of the century' in parenting."
