An Open Letter

To the Parent of the child my son is targeting with biting- All I can say is that I’m sorry. I don’t know why my son is “targeting” your daughter and biting her. From my understanding they are buddies and play well together – until he decides to take it that one step further and ruin the fun. I can only imagine what you think of us as parents. How could we possibly allow this type of behavior? Well please know that we don’t. We do not tolerate biting, hitting, name calling, spitting, etc. in our home. Not that this will ease your mind at all but my husband and I have been where you are. I know how it feels to get “that” call while at work or to see the bite mark upon pickup.  At our old daycare our (now 4 year old) daughter was the target of not one, but two biters which went on for almost 2 years.

My husband and I always knew we were going to be a two income family, regardless of where we were living. So when we found out we were pregnant with our daughter, finding the perfect place for her was a top priority. I started looking as soon as we passed the 12 week pregnancy mark. We looked at nannies, in-home daycare centers, privately owned centers and corporate daycare centers. I got recommendations for various childcare options from friends, family, neighbors and co-workers. To say I did “some research” would be putting it mildly. We finally narrowed the decision down to two locations. Both were within the same price range, within 5 mins of each other (and our house) and both offered the care/services we were interested in. It came down to the personality and energy of the teachers and the overall happiness of the kids that sealed the deal for us in terms of where we...
