Being afraid for her safety and your own well-being, you institute a plan to change her behavior.  Suggest a punishment, with her possible reactions.  Then, try substituting an alternative behavior by reinforcing an incompatible response.  Label the antecedent stimulus for the biting response, Punishment I or II, escape or avoidance, and the reinforcement for the new named response.  What do you consider to be the best theory or method for improving this child's behavior?
