Yesterday our youngest bit me. It's unusual for him and he was playing around, but I wasn't thrilled. I calmly told him biting was not okay. He tried again, and I stopped him.
Victim: Please don't bite me. Biting is not okay. It hurts.

Biter: I eat you.
Victim: (Smile) No, you cannot eat me.
(Shockingly brief pause.)
Biter: I can try.
