Any good techniques to stop the biting that has started? We are shadowing (keeping child within arms length), offered another method to keep mouth busy (child still uses binkie, child had it all day today after 2 bites within 1 hour, was told by director to use this method), redirection, seperation from classroom. Mother of biter, yesterday after 3 bites and child was sent home, attempted to agrue with me about our policy while I was serving food to my children at lunch. She was very vocal and director had to step in and remove her. Another mother, a bite victim, called me a f'''ing b'''h today over the phone and told me that I am a worthless teacher. She later apologized for her words. Child who is biting has no language skills (possible overuse of binkie? just my opinion as mother, through my observations of interactions between mother and child, uses it to shut the child up), very bad (and sad) home life/situation. Other children are picking up on this and are now biting and it's like a bite fest in my room. I am beyond depressed and do not want to go to work tomorrow.
