anyone gone through this? henry's being bitten by several of his classmates. it seems he's a bully-magnet. he's quite the hugger, and apparently, he'll hug even when someone doesn't want it, and therefore gets bitten. what's your daycare's policy on biting? do they have a 3 strikes & you're out rule?
henry goes to a crunchy/hippy school. like they do yoga, crunchy. so they have an inclusion policy. they had a behaviorist come out to the school to observe the behavior, and she concluded that there wasn't anything out of the ordinary. our first option is to move henry up a class, into the "middler" class. it's only 7 kids right now with 2 teachers, and is supposedly a quieter/calmer class. my worry though is that he's not as advanced in communication as the other kids in there, he barely talks at all. also, he's NOT a calm kid. at all. or quiet either. he'd be the youngest by a month, but the next youngest is a girl and talking in sentences LOL
has anyone moved up classes early? i'm so hesitant because i LOVE his teachers, but on the other hand, they move everyone in the classes up at the same time and keep a teacher, so he'd be with the biter(s) pretty much forever. i do know and understand that it's an age-appropriate behavior, but we're getting to be sick of it. henry has a nasty bite on his cheek, and his whole cheek is black and blue.
i have an exam in an hour, so i'll not be around for a little while, but i just wanted to see if anyone had any experience.
