Your 1-year-old bites you -- on purpose.
What to do: Put her down in a safe place and calmly say, "No biting, time-out." Wait one minute, then scoop her up, tell her you love her, and move on.
What she learns: I bite, I lose attention.
Your 10-month-old loves to fling food onto the floor during meals.
What to do: Patiently say mealtime is over. (Don't worry about her starving. If she were hungry, she'd eat it instead of tossing it.)
What she learns: I throw my food, I lose it.
Your tot keeps grabbing ornaments.
What to do: For young kids, the temptation to touch may be too great. Put a safety gate around your tree or keep your baby out of the room it's in.
What she learns: I can't touch everything.
