Hello. A number of years ago I put together a handout for the parents of the children in my infant-toddler classroom. It was about why young children bite. That handout became the seed for an article on my website (www.tw4ece.com) called Biting: Dracula at the Day Care. Each and every month, it is the most popular page on my site with more hits than any other page. I also frequently get e-mail from parents who are struggling with the issue of toddlers who bite. I try to answer them as best as I can always leaving the disclaimer that without knowing the child, the family, the settings, and the context in which the child lives my thoughts are general at best.
It is my intention to use this blog as a place to direct families and educarers from my website so that a discussion can take place.
I look forward to the dialogue!
