He was biting so hard that he left teeth marks and bruises on his brother - luckily no blood was drawn. We did bite him back until he objected - didn't work.

Another child might have a toy he wants. He gets frustrated at not being able to get it and he bites them. This is not defensive, more aggressive.

Germs are spread by dirty hands touching the face. If he has a cold, picks his nose, and then opens the fridge door, his cold germs are being spread.

comment How do you potty train for overnight?
Yes. They are usually pretty groggy, but we sit them on the toilet and say something like "go pee!" or "use the toilet!". One child was quick to comply. The other resisted, initially. We told them that as soon as they went they could go back to bed. Within a week as soon as they were on the toilet, they would go and it was very quick. They went right back to sleep. Try using a night-light in the bathroom so they aren't shocked by the brightness. That got us the most resistance.
