    Mainly for kids under three. Has your child ever been bitten?

    My son gets bitten several times a week. It s the same child. She has "sensory issues". I think issues is that she is part shark. She bit my son on the cheeks she has had a mark since October from that bite. Yesterday, shark girl bit another girl on the ear.

    I am considering pulling my son out of this daycare. It is 150/week. Expensive, but the bites do not cost extra. Problem is, our next child will have to been rolled in this daycare be ause it is generally considered the best.

    I do not want my so to get a permanent scar, and he talks about the girl biting me and "she not nice, daddy". Next time I pick him up, I am considering hip checking her into the wall, but I don't want bit either.

    The teacher shouldn't be letting this happen. The girl should be the one to leave not your kid.

    I'd pull him out for now until they sort it out, that is if you're really keen on this daycare.

    The shark should be going, not your kid though.

    They can't discriminate against her because she has sensory issues. She is smart and does not seem to have any issues I can see.

    Odd. Usually biters get booted from daycare after the second or third offense. Is her "sensory" problem getting her a pass?

    It not discriminating. Bitting is not allowed. The daycare my kid use to go to had very strict rules on bitting. 3 times and done. Can you have your kid moved to another class room. I would raise hell if my kid kept getting bit and nothing was being done.

    Also what are Sensory Issuses. I never heard of it.

    Yeah, I had to have a talk with the teacher about the day when my son took another child down and kicked them. I was blamed for rough play. I will teach him to defend himself when the time comes, but I don't want him showing any aggression at this age.

    He is a very sweet boy, but he is the youngest by far in that room. When he was the oldest before moving up, he started being a bully, buthe has only bitten other kids twice, both in response to the child sticking their hands around his mouth.

    But this little biking child will walk up and bite unprovoked.

    Well teh jab doesn't have to necessarily be aggressive, it would help him create distance and warn the biter to back off. He'd be doing it in self-defence.

    I am. At that point now. The woman who runs the daycare is the mother of another cop I worked with. For sure, when he is three, he is going to pre k, but it is only four days a week which means babysitter.

    WTF is this "sensory issues" bullshit? Jeez people are soft these days. The girl needs to get kicked out and be disciplined by her parents.

    man, that sounds awful. i hate how everyone needs to accommodate the lowest common denominator. it's like people who aren't allowed to bring pb&j sandwiches to school anymore because someone has a nut allergy.

    Make sure they write up every incendit. The one my daughter used to go to used to write up everything. Even one time my kid threw a fit on a field trip and started crying. It helps you incase something really serious happen, like her breaking skin or something.

    Just have to find the right daycare. We've been very successful finding a family-type daycare with low children count. That way they get constant supervision and it becomes more of a play-day. This really helps in teaching social interactions.

    That being said, my daughter (the youngest at the daycare) bit another child. It was her defense mechanism as she was being manhandled by the older child who was trying to treat her as a baby. Oh well... just hope that doesn't stick as a pattern.

    Re: special needs accomodations, it's worse than you all think when the kid gets to school... but that should not affect much in the world of daycare, which is all essentially private. This seems pretty cut and dry that the other kid should be the one to go, but if it is someone taking care of kids out of their house vs. a brick and mortar "daycare" center such as Kindercare, feelings and family relationships may get in the way of that. One other thing: $150 a week ain't too bad. My wife and I paid $205 a week before our daughter went to school.

    In my opinion if this day care lets your child get bitten over and over don't send him there. You can find a better place. Even if they do something about it the fact that it's taken several incidents for them to do something about a biting child shows it clearly isn't very well run

    You should have your wife take care of your child.

    Also: Threaten a lawsuit, saying that your son is being abused.
