How should I be parenting my eighteen month old who is biting and hitting a toddler sibling?

There maybe jealousy here, show you care for both siblings together, when one bites the other say that is wrong but do not smack.

One age-old technique is to catch the kid biting another, and bite him/her just enough to sting and not break skin, which should make him stop biting others.

First you need to be consistent with punishing. Its not too early for time out. One thing i wouldn't do is bit or hit him. Time out is best.

Make sure the eoghteen month old knwos that biting and hitting is nor accpetable. Watch him or her closely and see if you can identify a trigger for this behavior.
