I'm 23. I'm a single mom. My sons father met him once when he was 14 months old and never came back. I already feel like a failure as a parent. Today just topped things off. I don't think I can do this anymore.
My son gripped a child's head (around the same age) with two hands and bit him on his forehead like he was eating chicken or something. Apparently he literally looked like he was trying to tear the skin. He left a horrible mark on his forehead. :( the teacher says my son waits until no one is looking to go and attack another child.
The day care had the parents sit down and talk. The little boy had both his mom and dad there. They were older parents. I was alone and I felt like crap. I felt like I was put on the spot.
I honestly don't think I am cut out for this single mom thing and I've just been crying on and off all afternoon.
Why is my child biting like that? How did he learn to wait until no one was looking? How can I stop it?
I'm not a strong person at all so I have no idea how to be stern with him so he walks all over me already. :(
