This story also offers alternatives, and can be a positive tool to use with your kiddo to help reduce this behavior.

Some parts of the story:
- However, I should not bite unless I am eating something!
- If I bite my toys, I might break my teeth! That would hurt, so I will not bite my toys.
- If I bite myself, that hurts me. I will not bite myself.
- If I bite my friend, that could hurt them! I don’t want to hurt them, so I will not bite my friend.
