how do you handle kids being rude and/or mean to your child at the park.
i was at the park today with my 18month old twins and they were crawling around a slide on the TODDLER play ground and these 5 year old boys were playing pirates. one ran over and started pretending to stab one of my boys. my son started to cry because he was kinda scared. i told the boy, i dont think he wants to play that game hes just a baby. or however i worded it. later he came up and did it again. my mom and i had to tell him again that the babies aren't old enough to play that game.
he wasn't overly aggressive or anything and it didn't get the point where i had to find his parent or anything.
but it got me thinking about what I would do if there was a child at the park who was actually being aggressive or mean.
how would you handle a situation where a child is being mean to other children on the playground?
would you talk to the child, or go straight to their parent
what experiences have you had like this?
what would you do if someone came to you and told you that your child was being inappropriate to other children on the playground?

I would speak to the child, as you did. If it kept happening, I would speak to the parent.
