The other day at playgroup i was watching my DD (2yrs) play on her own as she usually does. Another little girl who is 3, came up to her and i thought they wer going to play together in the 'home corner'. DD smiled at her and showed her the doll she was holding.....instead this littel girl, stared her down, snatched the doll from her hand, threw it on the floor and said something to her (i didnt hear it), pushed the cups and things DD had set up on a table onto the floor and walked away. DD didnt seem upset by this but i was quite angry! I wanted to tell the 3yr old that wasnt a nice thing to do and ask her to give the doll back to DD and pick up the cups, please. But i thought that would be over reacting. I just went over to DD and gave her the doll and picked up the cups myself.
DD doesnt get to socialise much at all, hence why we go to playgroup. I dont want her socialising experiences being like this and i dont want her turning into something nasty like this little girl. I dont know what her issue was with my DD. Her mother didnt see what happened, she was too busy chatting to other mum's. I didnt bring it up with her, i dont really know her.
What do you do when you witness other children being or playing nasty with your child?
