I Am Failing

Note from school:

The Wild Child was playing with another child in the playroom under the slide and bit the child on the head above her right ear. No other children were affected. The Wild Child sat in the corner, was told not to bite her friends, and apologized.

Also, right after I was discussing this with her teacher, The Politician said, "Momma, I ate some moon sand today, so I'll probably throw up tonight."

Is the "Wild Child" getting a lot of attention surrounding this biting thing? I ask because sometimes it is all about getting a reaction out of people. The best thing you can do is give her the least amount of reaction you can about biting. In other words... her teacher needs to remain calm and put her in time out even though she doesn't "get it" and then when she gets home don't make a big deal about it. I'm not saying this works and that it will change anything...but it is what the "experts" (whoever the heck they are) tell people to do. Good luck...this too shall pass!!

Were you a biter as a little one?

I don't think I was a biter, although I did bite Chris Collins at the Methodist Church preschool once, but I had to be 3-4, and I remember getting my mouth washed out with soap there (wow, they could do things in the 70s you could never do now!)

So she didn't get it from me...... I'll have to ask Mr. Sasha's mom if he was a biter.
