Don’t hurt the child’s teeth- oh, no!


My husband and I were eating at a fast food place by the play area. Out came a rambunctious little group of kids, maybe 4-5 years old? One of the children ran up and BIT one of the parents. She kindly said, “Please don’t bite me”. The parent of the aggressor came and sort of said, “Dont do that…” with little authority. The victim of the bite said, I kid you not, “You know what we did when our child bit? We suggest getting a dog chew toy so they wont hurt their teeth when biting.” I swear I couldn’t make this up. Instead of training them it was wrong, they gave them a dog toy. This is why writers people watch. You just never know.
