Title: Biting
Post by: loriannrichard on June 18, 2012, 08:12:09 PM
my 2 y/o daughter is getting bit by another toddler in an in-home day care and the day care provider is refusing to do anything about it. It's happened a lot, my daughter comes home with bite marks at least twice a week, most of which have broken the skin. I've tried talking to the day care provider and she had the nerve to insult me, claiming that I don't know children's behaviour and it's all a part of being a tot. I am afraid that my daughter, an only child, will pick up this behaviour...but most importantly, WHAT can I do as a parent, other then the grueling task of finding another day care, to prevent this from happening again AND to get the day care provider to take some kind of action toward the other child &/or parents. To make matters worse, I noticed a bite mark (no doubt that it's a bite mark!) on her today when we got home, called the day care & asked if she was bitten today, she had the nerve to tell me no!!

Rather than making a call to the day care center, I think you should go there and talk with the owner of it because it is a serious problem due this your daughter might be fall in illness. And along with the owner you also should talk with the parents of that child who is biting. Don't ignore this because it is a serious problem.
