My ds is 26mo, and his one vice is biting. It seems to come and go based on I don't know what. Well, I imagine this latest round has been set off or intensified by the fact that I weaned him about a month ago. Immediate causes seem to be sometimes anger or getting wound up/overexcited or something like that, but it's not generally obvious what will set him off. We keep thinking he's got teeth coming in, but I actually got a decent look in his mouth today and I didn't see anything.
We've mostly been doing time-in type things in the form of "couch meetings" as suggested in playful parenting (this is the discipline book I convinced dh to read, I've not actually read it yet). They seemed to be helping or a while, but he doesn't even seem to want to acknowledge us now.
I think we'd be managing ok (well except dh is getting impatient), but I work and he goes to daycare and it's starting to become an issue there. It had been once every week or two or so, but he had two incident reports yesterday, and one today, and they said they've started shadowing him. That is fine, but I hear about the stories of kids getting kicked out of daycares for biting and I worry. Plus at 2 it's not like there's anything I can do when I come to get him about biting that happened hours ago.... There was also talk about having a meeting with one of the supervisors, does anyone have any experience with that? I mean if they had something else to do they'd be doing it, wouldn't they?
This is kinda disjointed, but really any advice or reassurance or anything would be helpful at this point.
