Who is more protective?

Posted by   + Show Post
Today at my daycare, DD got bit on the face. We were all playing in the play area and she started screaming. I looked up to find a child's arms around her head and his face against her eye. He drew blood in 3 places. I was upset but know biting and hitting happens when kids don't know how to communicate. My DH was so irate he told me that he didn't want the kid coming to our home again. Daddy bear was much worse than momma bear. I'm shocked because he is a very calm person, I'm the one that should have been a red head!
So who is more protective, Momma Bear or Daddy Bear?

We both can be very protective, it just depends on the situation. I wouldn't want the child around my kid again who bit them hard enough to draw blood

 Exactly!  And you will at some point.  It sucks!  (I've done day care for 15 years and through 3 of my own kids)

Quoting keeckhardt:

I was thankful that it was my kid that got bitten. May sound off, but it would have been much harder if I had to call a parent and tell them their child got bitten.

Quoting Juniper53098:

This is us, too.  I run an in home daycare, so my daughter has gotten bitten a few times by other kids.  I've just always been thankful that she didn't do the biting ever.  DH is pretty calm, too, but he did get upset that she was getting bitten.

Quoting MamaJane:

 You work with kids, you know.  That's why you had a different reaction.  When one of my kids got bit (And they have many times) I was just relieved that it wasn't my own who had bit.  Usually this understanding comes with time. And I'm sorry for your little girl.  That made me cringe.  Face injuries are the worst.

I think Tom and I are about equal, however like you 2, I think I have a better understanding then he does.
