I am starting to wonder about what on earth is happening to this country.
When did it become acceptable for a four year old to punch a 2 year old in the head repaetedly and for no reason, and nothing happen?
No apology, no telling the child it is not acceptable - nothing. Well the opporsite of nothing really - lets all go and be nice to the child who punches whilst completely ignoring the toddler that got punched and has marks over his head from it.
Sorry, rant over - trying to think of nice calming thoughts!

Oh no that isn't good. Where did this happen?
We have a 'tinker' at playgroup (his mums words ) and he is very violent and abusive,gets given sweets?????? I wonder sometimes if discipline even exists to some children.
Think nice happy thoughts,count to 10.......all else fails brew up and slate the devil child!!!!

What a little s**t.Some kids can be like that.Think happy thoughts,Pip.Happy thoughts such as the day he picks on a kid twice his size.
I had just such an occasion.My nephew(Darren's NOT mine),is a bit like that.In one day he managed to hit Whirly three times,and pull Bridie's hair for no other reason than he wants his own way with my kids toys,in their own home and if they don't do as he wants,or give him what he wants this is how he behaves.You'd think he was two?No ,he's 7 in July,old enough to know better.His mother pretends not to notice.He tried to jump on Harry too but lets just say he won't do it again.He picked himself up off the floor was about to play the victim but he saw that I saw the whole thing.No sympathy from me,just the look.They used to be at our house every week,so he drove me up the wall.I know she's wondering why we're always busy these days,I'm just afraid of that conversation,what'll come out when I open my mouth.Whole nother story though.
Don't think some people can be just sensible with discipling these days.You either get them knocking the sense out of the poor kids or they're so afraid to say no to them they're little monsters.

charlie got punched in the face by a 4 yr old a few weeks ago at our local toddler group.
the 4 yr old was teasing charlie with a cardboard tube penguin that he had made so charlie being the toddler that he is and just turning 2 grabbed the penguin and ran, so i went over to get it off him but before i got there the 4 yr old was screaming at him till he was red in the face and had whacked him in the mouth, the other childs mum went over to the situation to and i thought it was all goin to be sorted calmly, but boy was i wrong
the other mum started screaming at charlie ' get off his penguin' and 'nooooooo not his penguin' it frightened me to the point that i started crying i had to leave, how could another parent start screaming like a banshee at my little boy who's half the size and half the age of her son. who had punched mine in the mouth and made it bleed! was he made to say sorry?? NOPE was i given an apology?? NO,
i ended up leaving and i'm not going back.
i couldnt even bring myself to have a go at her i was so shocked but maybe thats a good thing cause prob would have made the situation worse, that day i was feeling so poorly and was missing john which is prob why i cried but i was soooo shocked that another parent could react like that!!!!!!

Thanks so much for all your replies.
This incident happened at playschool, but they wont do anything about it and just say the matter is being dealt with.
I put a formal letter of complaint in because it's not the first time the child has been aggrexive to mine, i may as well not have bothered for all the good it will do!
It's not the fact it has happened ( although i'm not pleased) its more how it was dealt with (or not) that upset me, because not one of the teachers asked how my toddler was.
Then to top it off the mother complained that i restrained her child!!!!! if she was doing her job right I wouldn't have had to

Oh dear not good is it.
How dare she complain you restrained her child-she was lucky you didn't "restrain her"!!!! Oh I do hate the ones who turn a blind eye to trouble.
Hope the matter and your letter taken seriously pip x
Zoe-how awful for you,I appreciate how upsetting you must have found that,summon up the strength to return hun,and kick the crap outta that freak that screamed in your sons face...(out of sight of the babies of course)! How horrible.
A lil boy once tried to strangle Tom,and his ma had tattoos on her knuckles!!! She said he was cuddling him-I just casually replied well do you want me to cuddle you like that??? Oddly enough she didn't!!!!!!
I have to be very careful,because at the mo,I'm the victims mum,in 6mth,I will become the rotters mum however rest assured ladies,my little devil WILL be dealt with properly!!!!
