Get Ready to Be Stunned: Child Abuse By Biting

This is an incredible story. I read it and thought, ‘Really. What goes through the mind of a 24-year-old to do such a harmful thing? ” Honestly, I don’t know because I can’t imagine sitting with a 6-year- old and deciding to play a biting game with that child. Yes, that is what a Florida woman allegedly did, according to NBC Miami! She was arrested and charged with child abuse.

Try to picture it. Rachael Bohbot is with her boyfriend and his six-year-old son over the course of a weekend.She decides it would be fun to play a biting game. Let’s see who can bite the hardest. Apparently Rachael won the game and left fresh bite marks on the child’s thigh and shoulder. According to the report, the child cried uncontrollably. When the child returned to his mother, he reported the biting, was limping and hurt.


Frankly, I am stunned. How could the dad watch this and think it was OK? What does this say about the dad dating this woman? And what is wrong with this woman that she didn’t react to harming a child?

Scary, sad, upsetting and wrong. I feel for this child.

Rachael  is a deeply disturbed woman who needs more than legal action, she needs therapy to understand how her actions were abusive. I hope she gets helps. She desperately needs it. And the father also needs to rethink his relationships and protection of his child. He is equally culpable as he was responsible for the safety of that child. And the child…let’s pray the biological mother fights for his welfare. He is the real victim.
