My brother came over to my house the other day to fix my stove (my husband is great at fixing cars but my brother is the master of appliances) and my sister in law and two little nephews came with him. Michael is three and Conner is four. Michael has a bad habit of being too rough with the dogs. I have an eight year old collie named Maggie that is so good with children that they can do pretty much anything to her and she won't flinch. My eight month old climbs on her pulls her, bites her, and she won't even get up and move away from her. Michael was trying to get Maggie to follow him into my daughter's room, where they were playing. He was pulling her hair and, even though he was told by me, his parents, and my four year old daughter to stop pulling on her, that he was hurting her, and he wasn't listening.
Finally, my four year old got fed up, grabbed a handful of his hair, and gave it a good yank, shouting "How does it feel? How do you like it, Mikey?" He started crying but eventually apologized to Maggie and he didn't do it again. Even his parents said that he deserved it. I told my daughter that she shouldn't have pulled his hair but I didn't punish her. My mother thinks I should have.
What do you think?
