Has your tot ever bitten another kid? This Mother’s Day, hear from a mom who’s been there.
I’m not even gonna try to sugar coat this whole biting thing you’ve got going on right now. Because it sucks! There is nothing worse than getting a call from school that your little angel just left teeth marks during circle time. In this situation, I think being the parent of the culprit is a million times worse than being the parent of the victim. Because you can’t help but blame yourself, you know? I couldn’t stop my kid from biting. Time outs, taking away privileges, nothing worked. The more attention I gave it, the more she did it. But if I ignored it? Well that just got me the the stink eye from other parents. My mother-in-law told me it was just a phase. And it turned out she was right. After a few months of torture, the biting stopped and here I am two years later
standing on the other side. As it turns out, I was in good company with the moms of booger flingers, toy stealers,
and kids who fart on other kids. And none of us are bad parents. And guess what? Neither are you. Love, A Mom Who’s Been There
