My DS has gotten in trouble the past two weeks for hitting once and biting twice at daycare. They use time out at day care when they catch them doing it, which the teacher has each time. And then they tell us when we pick him up. Each time we have discussed with him about how it hurts and makes his friends and us sad when he does those things. We have also started (just yesterday) using a reward chart where he can get stickers when he is good and then if he has all stickers at the end of the week he gets a prize. He didnt get one yesterday because he threw tantrums all night. He wont get one today because he bite two different children at school. I dont know how to best handle this. Its hard to know how to punish him when I dont see him till way after he did it. I know the teachers think I have a horrible bully child (and probably that we arent good parents) but he really is a sweet child and I have never seen him bite another child (not at church and not playing with his cousins), he only does it at day care though he has bitten me a couple times of the last month.
Sorry this is so long but I am at my witts end and I do not know how to handle it any more. Do you think asking the day care to call me when he does it so that I can go over there would help?
