Please don't bring your child to the playground or play area if they are violent. I don't care why your kid pushes and hit.

i had to leave the park today cause some kid kept attacking my son. And no, bringing him over to say he is sorry does not cut it.

i am sorry you son had Add or ADHD or whatever his fucking problem is, but you can't let him run around a playground if he behaves like that.

I agree, or don't act horrified when my child womps them back and makes them cry. I don't teach my children to be violent, but I've made it clear they are expected to defend themselves if attacked (by someone who could actually hurt them).

Maybe they should lock violent Johnny in the closet for the next 30 years, that'll teach him. *eye roll* The only way for a child to learn is through exposure, if they stop taking him to the park regularly he will never learn appropriate behavior. My son has some issues though he is not violent he is a loud tantrum thrower sometimes. The first 6 months of taking him to church he was disruptive, irritable and especially during singing (sensory issues) he would behave badly. I stop going to church for two years because of judgmental jerks at church but guess what, God made him this way and he needs to learn to behave ! I started taking him regularly and after 6 months to a year he finally adjusted and now he acts like an angel at church! Everyone is amazed at the turn around. Long story short, if he is truly hurting your child that's one thing but if you are just annoyed by his aggressiveness try to see the moms point of view, she's try to teach him how to behave appropriately.

He shoved my two year old down the slide. He was not sitting , he was standing at the top of the slide, not even sitting. He was grabbing him, he was pushing. 

He should NOT have been there. I don't give a fuck how he learns how to act normally, but keep him the hell out of public play areas until he learns to keep his hands to himself.

I have no clue what was wrong with this child. But, the mom must know he is too aggressive and letting him run free in a play area is totally uncool. I left after her son pushed my son down the slide. She had him apologize to my son and then sent him back in to play.

meanwhile, I am leaving with a crying two year old who did nothing wrong.

You don't get to teach your child at the expense of another child's safety. If your child is a bully or, like this post states, violent, you can't expect other children to be their punching bag while they "learn". There was a kid at my daughter's middle school who was violent and would hit other kids, and nobody would do anything because he was special needs. One kid snapped and hit him back, he learned that day that consequences have actions.

If a parent wants to take their kid in public to teach the kid to behave, the parent needs to be very actively involved with the kid as they interact with others to nip in the bud any inappropriate behavior. The mom should have been there to stop her child the moment her kid put his hands on the other child so as to prevent injury. Instead she was lazy and took the kid to the park so she wouldn't really have to deal with him.

 was the mom playing with her kid and teaching them "no we do not hit" etc right while it was happening, or observing from a distance?
