Problem solved.

How can I get my kittens to stop biting?

Try pushing into the bite. Prey does not act this way and it confuses the kitten. I got both my kittens to stop biting by pushing slightly (gently, not meanly) into the jaw every time they bit me, and it worked within a week. Another option is spray bottle.
