Any advice would be appreciated--my four year old son (just turned 4 on Saturday) has started biting my 11 month old son.

you might want to have him bite himself..i know that may sound harsh. but he needs to know how it feels. my childrens godmother is a preschool teacher and the other day while i was picking up my children from afterschool she was talking to a little boy who was pinching people ...she made him pinch himself. he didnt like one bit. he said it hurt and that he wont do it again. i have not seen or heard of him in the office again. and trust me..i hear everything that goes on since my mother in law is the preschool director and the godmother is the preschool teacher and afterschool director. they have taught me a lot when it comes to getting my little girls to stop doing things..and so far it has worked.

hope that helps.
