i went to a playland tonight to have dinner and talk with my mom while ds played (and ate.) the play system in our mcd's has a 2 story slide so you cannot see what happens up there .... and a man had a 2 yr old (about) who he was helping climb the slide over and over and one time i hear him SCREAM - no hitting - no pushing .... my mom jumped about a foot at the loudness of the scream (even over the noise of children playing) later on i asked ds if some man yelled at him. he said yes, he didnt seem bothered, told me he told the man, "u arent my mom and you are a stranger, if you keep talking to me i am supposed to yell 'fire.'" ds is only 5 so i am very proud he remember all i have taught him about strangers.... ds said he wasnt pushing, he was tickling his friend (a girl unrelated in any way to the dad or 2yr old boy) i talked to teh mom of the girl - the girl said he wasnt pushing or hitting, the man just yelled. the mom looks at me and says "she cant lie, she just cannot." so what do you do??? after some replies i will tell you what i did....

I would go and find out at that moment what was going on. I have no problem telling other, kids "no hitting, no pushing " if in fact I see them do it, and their parents aren't watching them. I would not yell at a child though.

I would not have believed that mother that said her child can not lie.
You did not see what happened. You do not know if them playing around could have been perceived as something else to someone else. I would tell my child that in the future, come right to me. That way, you can keep a closer eye on the situation and determine if the man was being a jerk or if your some was playing a bit too rough.

If I heard someone yelling I would go and check it out. If he was yelling at my son I would have told him there are better ways to talk to children that are not yours and second you should have found the child's parient. If you don't want your 2 year old to get hurt then you should not have them play. then walk away
