What would you do if...

Your child is in a sport, lined up for an activity. The kid behind your child is touching them. ( Kicking, tickling, grabbing etc.. you get the point lol ). Your child is asking them to stop, but isn't visibly upset or anything. Their coach or instructor ( whoever is in charge of said sport ) does not notice. This isn't the first time this has happened either.

So what would you do? Would you tell the person incharge in private about the situation? Or just forget about it? Or...???

See if the child isn't visibly upset, I might try to let them work it out on their own.  It really depends on the situation.

If my kid is just annoyed and not getting hurt or really upset about it? I'd do nothing. I let me kids work that stuff out on thier own. If its a continuous thing I talk to my boys about ways to ask them to knock it off or finding ways to avoid them. Like making sure they aren't next to them in line.

Just to add we deal with this a lot. Just on Tuesday a kid at practice was poking Caden and putting his mitt on Caden's head every chance he got. My son asked him to knock it off, but he didn't. Kids think that stuff it funny. Caden will now just try to avoid standing by that kid if he can tonight but we also teach them that you will ALWAYS encounter annoying people and you have to deal with it sometimes.

I would tell the person in charge, right then and there. Not privacey, they need to know and watch the kids. That's their job as coach.

In my sons karate you stand in line in order of rank. Of course the kid I'm talking. About is ranked right under my son. So if they are both there and are lined up for a certain activity... he will always be behind him.

Oh. If he can't get away from him and it's becoming that much of a problem, then I'd have my child tell the person in charge after or before class/practice what is going on.

I did talk with them... not to get anyone introuble but for a learning experience. They talkedwith everyone about personal space keeping your hands and feet to yourself! Hopefully that works!
