    I'd tell the mother. If it was your child, would you want to know? I know I would.

    Well I told the mother and she told me to mind my own f-ing business and that Z just needs to toughen up. So that went well.

    Its been that kind of week really. I can't wait til its school holidays. No expectations, no pressure, no drama.

    Unfortunately I think that's why it's best to stay out of such situations.
    You just never know what kind of reaction you are going to get.

    Wow that's fairly awful on the mothers behalf!! You did the right thing and at least now you can be comforted knowing that you've followed appropriate avenues. And hope the teachers are more compassionate than either of those children's mothers

    Oh no

    While I was reading along, I was thinking it would have been a good idea to approach Z's mum in a "Y has really taken to Z, but there is (insert issue) with X so I was hoping we could encourage a friendship outside of preschool that will give them a chance to build their friendship and make it easier for them to ignore X's negative behaviour."

    For what it's worth my dd1 was in a similar position to Z when she was in pre primary. As far as I know there was no physical bullying but there was a bit of exclusion. She became withdrawn and still is in year 4 even though one of the kids had since changed schools. Fortunately the mum of the other child was really good about it and we decided it was best to separate them all the following year. Having that happen so early on at school had made her anxious and weary of friendships.

    I can't understand why she would say that to you but if I were that mum I would have been very appreciative that you cared.
