OK. let me explain. I was at a playdate and this kid kept jumping off chairs and his mom kept telling him to cut it out and he wouldnt listen. Hes 3. Well, he falls off the chair and bursts his lip, and runs to his mom for comfort and she steps away from him, giving him the "I told you speech" and how he should have listened and she didnt feel sorry for him and blah blah blah. She wiped his lip but wouldnt hug him or pick him up. He obviously needed a hug but she just kinda shoved him off.
I thought that was kinda mean...but I am on the fence on this one. I can understand where she was coming from, but I wont necessarily do that to my kid.

I would not have the will power to not comfort my hurt child, but hey whatever works. This is probably not the first time that this kid has hurt himself doing something unsafe so she is probably just doing what works for them. I think getting hurt would be enough for my daughter to think about doing something dangerous but every kid is different.
