Observe what is happening when he suddenly decides to bite and you may be able to at least avoid the triggers, which may also prevent biting from becoming a habit. I let my gcc call the shots somewhat, by that I mean I open the cage door and let her go in and out as she wants. (I have no problem either getting her out of or into her cage when I need to, btw.) I've also found that she will bite if you hold your hand over her head or in front of her for no apparent reason (i.e., other than to have her step up). I've noticed that some people will be tentative when putting their finger out for her, which freaks her out a bit and causes her to get anxious and more prone to bite. So I tell people to act firmly when asking her to step up, if they want to hold her. Sounds like you might want to avoid having your bird on your daughter's shoulder in the future.
