I have a little situation at my son’s school. He started kindy this year. He tells me he really enjoys school but his teacher just advised me that he has bitten one of his classmates two weeks ago while they were in class when the teacher was there, and bit the same child’s hat during breaktime today. His teacher said that if it happens again, they’ll have my son see a counsellor. He’s never had any “biting” incidents before at pre-school or childcare. When I spoke to him about it, he tells me that the other child has been kicking him and annoying him. Has anyone else experienced this? How did you handle the situation? Could I please have any suggestions from other parents on what to do or say to the teacher when I meet with her?
