This has never really happened to me before but, me and my children were at a graduation party for a cousin whom we had never met before. There was this child younger than my older two who was kind of bullying them. I kept just smiling and telling my kids to play nice, but he then pushes my daughter of the steps from the patio, no one said anything to this young boy and my daughter was okay and did not retaliate, neither of my children did. It was just very awkward, I know he was younger but, am I wrong to think that the parent of the child should have at least apologized to my daughter and explain she told me "mom, why he push me down" . She wasn't hurt just sad.
There's one kid who does this to my son, and yes he is younger. He drives my son crazy and last time he was around my son I looked right at the mom and corrected her son in front of her. She got mad and left. I didn't care. I don't normally do that but it was over the top, honestly.
