    As for the Dr, if I was in the waiting room I'd probably be a little and then .

    What a strange situation all around!

    I see those two situations as completely different.. shes told the little girl that they need to go and she will get her another sticker at the shops... the little girl has a TANTRUM because she wants the sticker that she lost at the doctors. The doctor has then gone against what the mother said in front of the child to boot and rewarded the child for having a tantrum.

    Im with the mum on this one. She is right. Docter was wrong. He should never have touched her. I would have been very upset.

    Interesting one.....

    IMO the little girl wasn't having a tantrum at all. She was distressed she couldn't find her sticker.

    And even tho I understand the 'she has to learn that she doesnt get what she wants by throwing a tantrum' thing, I think that went out the window when the dr said he would get her another sticker. if the dr didnt intervene, than ok, but bc he did the whole situation changed and therefore the mothers view shouldve adjusted too. If the little girl saw her mother 'huff' was she seeing her mother have a tantrum in her eyes?

    How odd!
    I think I'd be too surprised to be offended!!
    Look, I think I'd just thank the dr and tell ds how lucky he was to have the dr replace the missing stickers. I'd probably playfully reprimand the dr and invite him to adopt ds when he grows up to be a spoilt so and so.
    In the car, I'd express my disappointment to ds about his behaviour in the doctor's office and hold onto the stickers until I next saw ds demonstrate the 'big boy' behaviour I expected in the doctor's office.

    Bizarre.

    I sort of think that the girl being upset about losing her sticker is different than chucking a tantrum because she wanted a sticker. I try to pick my battles and I think i'd've just let the doctor give her the sticker. Kids get bummed when they lose something they love, particularly if its given them a sense of pride (sticker for being brave at the doctor).

    But he shouldn't have taken the child without the mums permission. Thats super weird. If she was upset because she lost it then theres really no harm in her having a replacement to avoid a massive meltdown.

    Depends on the drs relationship with the mother and child. I see my dr at least once a week so she knows my kids really well. I would have no issue with it all depending on that relationship status

    Default Hubby has been dying for me to share this story on Bubhub...

    I think the fact that the mother continued to walk to her car after the Dr had taken her DD tells me that their is a personal relationship of one nature with the Dr.
