Why is my toddler biting me?

One of the main reasons toddlers bite is because they are feeling afraid or frustrated. When they haven't had their fill of close, relaxed time with their parents or caregivers, or when stress has risen in their lives, they may not express the fears or frustrations through natural outlets like crying and tantrums.
