    I wouldn't say bullying but I would mention what you saw. I think she needs to know to help her child build strategies to help him both when something happens when he thinks something might happen and what to do after.

    Okay I will try to catch her this afternoon then.

    I should add that DS wasn't around for any of these incidents this morning. He was off doing his own thing and I only noticed because after seeing the 'hurt' incident I was watching X like a hawk.

    I am not good at this kind of thing - I am not at all confrontational and am more of a 'lets all get along' kind of person. Embarrassing admission: I was actually shaking slightly from nerves when telling the teacher this morning but I felt very strongly that they needed to know. So embarrassing that all these years out of school and I'm still nervous 'telling on people'.

    I absolutely won't mention bullying. I don't think kids of this age can really be bullies as they are still so immature and learning how to deal with conflict and emotions. But I am concerned that if left unchecked it might turn into bullying down the track. Poor Z doesn't have a single friend at school yet, and when he tries he gets hurt. Gosh it breaks my heart. :-(

    Of course you tell z's mum. If this isn't handled appropriately Z could end up with some real problems

    I would tell Z's mother.

    Carefully - but just to make sure that she is watching, and knows what to look out for. And can talk to Z and help him.

    I would also perhaps encourage as much as you can the friendship with your DS and Z ... explain to your DS that Z doesnt have many friends yet, and its nice to include other kids and make them feel wanted.

    I was in this kind of situation a couple of years back. DD had a friend who was very possessive and didnt like her playing with other kids - it was difficult to deal with.

    Yes I would tell her, especially if it affecting Z's demeanor and attitude towards school.
