  • I wouldn't over-react. My three year old says terrible things sometimes- "Mommy punched daddy." "Daddy destroyed mommy!" "I was playing with mommy last night and she died." Out of context it can sound awful- but it's really just his imagination, or games we play. If I saw the parent I may bring it up, and watch their reaction. You'll probably get a feeling of what the context was.

  • If you're concerned mention it to the teacher. She will know if the child has said anything like that before and if she suspects its not a game she will report it to the necessary people. Teachers are state mandated reporters, if they suspect child abuse or neglect that have to report it.

  • I would just mention it to the the teacher so she can keep an eye out for abuse.

  • I would talk to the teacher so she is aware of it & can keep an eye out to see if anything else is going on.

    My son told his classmates that mommy & daddy were fighting & mommy won... (In all honestly we were rough housing & tickling each other & daddy screamed Okay you won please please please stop!!))
