1 year old bitten in the face
Was at an indoor play area and a little girl bit my 1 year old in the face. Grabbed his head and chomped him right in the cheek. Happened in like two seconds. Literally had deep indents in his skin where her teeth were. I’ve never experienced either of my kids getting injured by other children this way while present, and frankly it messed me up. I was so pissed I didn’t know how to react. The other mom did say, “Did she bite him? Sorry.” In the past I’ve had no issues getting confrontational with parents who don’t step in to reprimand their child over bad behavior, but since they did say a short “sorry” I reasoned with myself that there was nothing else to be said in order to calm myself down. Unless there’s any feedback on what else I could’ve done in the moment, I guess this is more of a vent. I feel so guilty for not being able to have prevented this from happening while sitting two feet away... seriously kills me to see his little face with the marks. Ugh.
