We were at an octoberfest celebration. A little girl told my daughter that she needed to excercise because she was too fat. I went up to the little girl and told her she didn't need to tell my daughter that she is fat because it hurts her feelings. Did I do the right thing. If her mom approcaches me about it what should I tell her without it becomming a hugh confrontation. This is completely out of character for me. I don't know what happened to me other than the fact that I felt I had to defend my daughter.Answer Question
I don't feel like you were in the wrong AT ALL. Only in the fact that you haven't ALREADY spoken to the mother and had the issue addressed rather than to wait around and see if she says something. If my child had said this to someone else, I would want to know about it and he or she would be in trouble. I would not be mad at you for correcting my daughter on her unacceptable behavior because they are kids, if you wait too long, they forget. At least, thats what I read in American Baby.

The only thing I would have done. If a child said that to my child. Is "where is your mom and dad". Most kids will tell you or point to where they are. Then I would have went to the parents and told them they need to keep track of their kid. Because she is running around saying nasty things to other children.
