In the 2 months that my son has been in the toddler room at daycare, he's had 7 bites. They don't break the skin, but cause serious bruising. I know this is probably the beginning of events that are beyond my control (potential bullying, mocking may lie ahead) but I'm not happy. Daycare always gives the same story in their incident report: my son and another child went for the same toy, and my son was bitten. Either that really happens every time, or they aren't watching and say that's what happened. They report that sometimes he doesn't cry.
My concern, other than the fact that my son is in pain, is that he might start biting. Or there couold be other negative social effects. Maybe this will just make him stronger??? Still don't like it one bit.
