DD1 has been doing really well at 4yo kindy but lately has mentioned a couple of incidents where another child (M) has been bossing the kids around, telling them what they have to do in whatever game they are playing. M is one of the oldest in the class and quite tall, and she's a strongwilled little kid (I had a face-off with her when I was doing parent helper)
So DD1 and i have talked about how she doesn't have to do what M says unless its all good fun, and she can leave when it stops being fun.
So yesterday in the bath I saw three big scrapes on DD1's arm. She tells me that M grabbed her to stop her leaving the tree house. It was hard enough to graze the skin, so there are a couple of dots of blood, she must have dug her nails right in.
I'm very tempted to just chat the teachers about it but i don't want to make a fuss. DD1 and I have talked about how its wrong to hurt other children.
