This is pretty much a daily occurence at her preschool. This small, feisty 2 year old thinks it ok to go around hitting other kids. My DD who is 3 tells me everyday how this kid hits her at school. This morning, my DD broke down in hysteria when I dropped her off and she saw the 2 year old. She wouldnt let go of my hand and told me she wanted to go back home. She was scared of getting hit again. My DD absolutely loved school prior to this. Now she is crying and doesnt want to go to school. I have spoken to the teachers and all they say is that they are doing their best to teach this kid to use her hands to do other things other than hit kids. Well its not working! My baby is traumatized by this little girl.
Well on the way to school today, my DD started talking again about how she gets hit. So I have had it at this point. I tell her to hit her back and go tell her teacher. I do not want my kid to be bullied or be a victim. I have to teach her to defend herself. I do not care if anymore if that kid is only 2. She shouldnt be going around terrorizing my child. I didnt feel good telling my kid to hit her back, but at this point, I feel like that is the only thing that will work.
when I picked her up from school today, i asked her about it and she said, the kid hit her again today, and she hit her back on her shoulder and screamed "DONT HIT ME!!!!" and then went to tell her teacher. But its a preschool so the teacher was right there anyway. I felt good about it. My little girl is defending herself, finally! Maybe she wont be "bullied" again and would stop being afraid of school.
So am I alone on this? Did I do the right thing?
