Our dayhome provider called me yesterday, bawling her head off because her child bit mine while she was babysitting (they were fighting over a toy).
I spent 25 minutes consoling her that her dd is not evil, she's just a kid, and kids sometimes bite. She was really upset that her dd is going to turn out to be a bad kid and couldn't believe she'd do it, etc.
So my 2 year old ends up with teeth marks (& a bruise), yet I'm the one consoling the mom of the kid who did it. LOL!
I just had to laugh about that. I totally don't think it's her fault - kids act up sometimes - just make sure she doesn't do it again sort of thing. They're bound to fight, they spend 9 hours a day with each other, 4 days a week.
So am I too nice???
