    I have found that if I don't make a huge deal of it then DD gets over it and moves on pretty quickly (much better than I would!). A bright "oh dear, Mary isn't sharing very well today is she, never mind lets go over here and play with this" generally does the trick.

    That sounds like my eldest on some days. Sigh!

    If playgroup has the same toys as we have at home then dd1 can occ get confused as to why kids are playing with her stuff and chucks a tanty.

    I end up apologising to parents most weeks. Thankfully she has started to grow out of that

    It's horrible to watch it unfold but it's pretty normal behaviour, I wouldn't think the girl was being intentionally nasty, it's just a phase they seem to go through (I've noticed it more with girls too for some reason).

    When I see something like this I try my hardest to keep out of it unless DD is really upset. Then I try and distract her in to doing something else. I have caught DD acting "nasty" a couple of times (taking toys etc) and just remind her to share her toys and include other kids. It normally blows over within a few seconds.

    It is horrible to watch though
