    Is biting "normal" behavior for children three and older? I've heard both, but in my experience with three and four year olds the biters were usually sped and/or around other children who were always biting.

    They should have moved past the biting stage by 3 years old.

    It is not a normal behavior as many kids leave the habit of biting. But when they are getting lack of attention pushes them to this kind of behavior. Talk with your kids about the point of view and teach them not to bite.

    It is not normal behavior for children above age 3 if they are developing typically with their communication. I've had a Kindergarten student who used to bite, but he was deaf and struggled with effectively communicating with his classmates. My 4 year old son has also been bit recently by another 3/4 year old in his class who is developmentally behind his peers.
