Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

(there were a few other things we tryed i just cant think of what they were at the momment) i would like the loving son my friends had, i love my son i thought id never have one, most of the time happy hes here, the rest of the time i just want to run away with samara and hide. please help us everything others have suggested we done (not even his doctor can think of any other way to try and get him to stop abusing samara) Thank You So Much, Robyn, Rj, Samara & Bobby Balcom Las Vegas NV.

Teeth are not for biting (the term is "biter", not "bitter"). Do not encourage this behavior any longer. And tell Amara to stick up for herself, she's the oldest. Tell bobby if he keeps acting like this you will make him sleep outside for a week. 
maybe you could ask him how it would feel if he had the things that were done to his sister done to him. if he doesnt give you and answer then the first ime you catch him doing this, put him in time out for however old he is(3 years-3minutes)BUT if he gets up start the time over again. Then have him, when the time is over, appoligize to you for not listening when you told him to STOP and to his sister for hurting her.You could also try a reward system for whenever you see him being nice to you and your daughter
