the other day i was in a waiting room with my kids, and it had toys for them to play with. my son was doing just fine getting along with the other kids, playing together, then this mom comes with her dd and she starts playing with a toy. my ds wanted to play with it a couple minutes later, she wouldn't let him and pushed him away a couple of times (it was the kind on the wall, where flip the tiles and can change their clothes, there were 2 different sides, so 2 kids could play on it) he came and told me she wasn't sharing, so i just told him to wait his turn. he waited, and waited...and then finally she walked away to play with something else. he went over there and started playing, then she went over there and wanted to play with it again. he told her no, she pushed him, so naturally, he pushed back. they were pushing each other. i went over there and told the girl it didn't have her name on it, it's his turn.

People have different values. You say "she pushed him, so naturally he pushed back." That isn't how many people think or raise their kids. What would be natural is to walk away. That is what I would expect my child to do.
I wouldn't have gone over and told the litte girl "it didn't have her name on it'", rolled my eyes, or done anything that made a scene in the doctor's office.
