Hi ,I'm a toddler teacher,these days few kids in my class are hitting,biting or pushing each other,sometimes because they want what the other child has,we have been encouraging by using words as we don't hurt our friends ,lets be gentle etc. if the child continues the same bahaviour we start giving small time outs,also ask help from parents to talk about being gentle..what else can be done?

Also how to deal with parents who are defensive towards their childs behaviour,as my say is we should work together to bring the best out of the child?anm I wrong here,should i avoid notifying the parent if the child is constantly hurting others? Need help in these matters. Thanks

centexpk it has been my experience that any injury (especially biting) must be documented and both sets of parents notified. be sure the children are properly supervised at all times. toddlers should be taught to be gentle, not told! agree with other poster on rest of your issues.
