I think I handled it okay but is there a better way??
At the dr's office yesterday my son went over to this toy that was hanging on the wall. He's just standing there looking and this 2yo little boy pushes my son away from the toy. The boy's 9yo sister that's standing there tells him not to push and he hits her. Minutes later he swings at my son like he was going to hit him. The mother is on the other side of the room not paying attention while this is going on. So I had Brian come back and look at a book with me until the boy left the area. I'm guessing their ages by their size I don't know how old they were. The boy wasn't much older than 3 even though he was bigger than Brian. Brian is 2.5.

if another child does something inappropriate once (as long as my child doesn't get hurt) i let it go. i will tell my child, usually loudly, about the behavior that child is doing and how it is not acceptable and that we don't behave that way. if the child continues the inappropriate behavior, and the parent(s) don't say or do anything, i WILL say something to the child.
