Re: DayCare - Biting Toddler
As a parent of a child who has been both bitten and more recently has bitten two children in one day, I'd say you need to have a discussion with your day care provider about this. That she needs to keep the two children apart and to work with the biter to prevent this behavior from happening. There's usually some sort of warning prior to the behavior -- argument, playing too rough, teething -- or in my son's case, he announced at show and tell that he was going to bite.
A couple of weeks ago I was mortified to find out that my child bit a couple of children. On both of those occasions, he was not being supervised properly. He had given ample warning that he was going to bite, announced he was going to do so, wandered over to another child and rolled up his sleeve and BIT him on the arm. The other time, he got excited -- was rough housing and bit.
Some kids bite because they're teething, because they get excited, because they see other children do it, because they're upset....
