I taught my toddler how to not hit, push, shove, bite etc. She does VERY well with that and is very polite and friendly! However, I take her to my friends houses and she is constantly being "tortured"! She always comes running and hides behind me whenever they start pushing or shoving, she doesn't stand up for herself at all! I myself am a like that, but I don't want her to be that much like me. I am trying to get her to push back, grab toys back, and not put up with being walked all over! Is it wrong for me to teach her to "hit back" "push back" "bite back" ?? Or should I just intervene each and every time and fight her battles for her?
