It would depend if it was a once off or a regular thing. If it was the former I'd be annoyed but accept it's something small kids do sometimes. If it's happened several times before I'd be wanting it addressed.
I kind of feel sorry for CC tbh. I was talking to someone who is a CC worker a while ago about this topic and she said it was a bit of a mine field for them bc on one hand they have a duty of care to protect the victims. But on the other, many children who bite do so bc they are placed into care too young for *them* and CC is basically left to deal with it as parents say they have to work and asking the child to leave/cutting hours is then the CC's fault.

I didn't read it that way at all. I'm sure that's not what she meant.
I hope your little one is ok x

In fact it's one of my fears that I'll start being the woman in the supermarket where people say 'oh YOU'RE Hubert's mum' *meaningful glance to significant other*.
I think @lilypily was speaking from that kind of perspective, not saying you think you're better than anyone.
Anyway, I can sense that you're feeling a bit raw about this and I'm not attacking you, I guess I just hope that your views soften about this particular topic when you're over the initial anger and frustration.
I'm sorry your son is being picked on. I hope the CC staff would be happy to help support you with this. I hope your DS recovers soon too.
Andrew Fuller is a great resource about building resilience in children, which I think is really important when they are picked on at a young age. I think he has a couple of Ebooks around.

This is my first time doing this.
I hope my above post doesn't offend, I just can't find the right words to use to explain it all.

Being the mother of a biter. My son actually has sensory issues where it's all about his mouth. Does it when he is anxious, wants attention, frustrated.
He can not help it. Sensory overload.
I have not had any incidents where he has bitten children (non existant in his little world) but he has bitten staff.

By all means be concerned for your DS. I too have issues with some kids at care not being nice to my DD and saying she has a fat bum and is fat etc. When my then 3yo came home complaining about her thighs it broke my heart. So I push her towards the biting kids to play with as they are much less cruel. A bite they usually get over with no lasting damage. I will take that over the psychological bullying some of the other girls are doing.
So my advice is look at the child as a whole, not at the actions.
