I just got off the phone with Mr. Otis, LP's teacher. He had to call to let me know that there was an "incident" involving four students, one of which was my daughter. And she instigated the whole thing.
The class was lined up to go to gym and LP bit the kid in front of her, who in turn bit the kid in front of them, who then bit the kid in front of them. In total, three children were bitten and four children chomped down. All four children screamed bloody murder.
Apparently the "Don't Bite Your Friends" song from Yo Gabba Gabba has not penetrated LP's psyche. Nor has she realized that when she points to Moo, her cow, and says "No!" in a stern voice, it means the same thing when I do it to her.
Mr. Otis told me everything was okay and he sat LP down and talked to her. "She is smart, so I think she got it." My response, "Otis, I am pretty smart too and even though I understand I am not supposed to do things, I do them anyway sometimes."
I am not really sure how one stops a toddler from biting. She isn't really teething. I do think this is more about communication and getting her own way, but I hope it passes soon. Apologies to the moms of the other kids in LP's class!
