I have a 2 1/2 year old who has been informing me for the last week that he doesn't want to go to daycare. I have asked him why and he mentions one little boys name. I asked him again this morning and he told me that the other boy pushed him. Being a single working mom I can't just call into work to keep him at home so I talked him into going. I felt bad about making him go. I have seen this other boy act up. I need some advice on how to let my son know that going to daycare is ok and what to do do if the other child tries to push him again.
When I dropped my son off this morning I did mention to the sitter what he told me.

In my opinion if the teacher hasn't seen the little boy push your son I'd question the daycare he's at. They should keep their eyes on those children as if they were their own (that's what they get paid to do) and if this little boy is continuously pushing your son and the teacher has yet to see him do it, I'd have a serious talk with the teacher. I understand it's hard for 1 person to keep an eye on more than 5 children at a time but like I mentioned before, if this is an on-going thing where the boy pushes your son maybe the teacher is either ignoring the situation or isn't doing her job properly.

The daycare my son goes to anytime he gets bitten by another child they tell you right away but they aren't allowed to give you the child's name b/c they don't want you to confront the parents of that child and make a huge scene. If a child is harming mine, daycare rules or not I'm going to find out and I will confront them b/c they need to take action on their child!

Please tell your son to tell the teacher, have a word with the sitter, and the person in charge. Listen to your son, maybe he can be placed in another class. Good luck

It is definately up to the sitter to make sure that bullying isn't tolerated. I think if it doesn't get better you need to meet with the sitter and insist that something is done.

I work at a daycare, I have worked with all ages and (sorry - this is to the mom worried about biting) biting is not something you can "take action" against! You can stress to your child that biting is bad, but most of the time it is just an innapropriate way for a child to express their anger/confusion/frustration when they don't have the words to communicate or another child is bothering them!!! Sometimes they are just teething and it feels good...
ANYWAYS, to the mom with the child that doesnt want to go to daycare - Telling the teacher was great, but some children just have not learned (and don't understand) better ways to work out their problems... It is a lot of times a phase and the "trouble" child will work through it, but the teacher should be on top of it and make sure the child is made aware they are acting innapropriately

Your son is 2 he is old enough to use his words. He needs to tell that boy that he doesnt like to be pushed and that they need to get along cuz everyone at a daycare is friends and that is not how you treat a friend by pushing them

Do role play and have your son practice putting his hand up and saying "STOP doing that" firmly - or somthing similar like "I don't like that". Good luck - let us know how it's going.
