OP - Different kids respond differently to discipline, as I am sure you are aware. My son doesn't look concerned when I look him in the eye and speak very firmly, he yells in my face and hits me and keeps doing whatever he was doing. Its very difficult having a defiant child who doesn't respond like other kids to discipline, and I think the mother is likely to be offended if you approach her and suggest different ways of discipline. I don't think there is much you can do, particularly because you said she DOES try to deal with the behaviour. If she sat back and was too busy chatting to know what her child was like then I would agree that some gentle way of broaching it with her would be ok.

It's been my experience that these sorts of kids are the way they are due to lack of discipline. If it hurts her feelings than that her problem she needs to be told to teach her child how to behave appropriately not be allowed to let her kid be a bully !! It's no different if your child is a bully at school, the school calls and it's up to the parents to check their behaviour. Better she learns now than when he is an out of control teenager !

Ch'n need support and guidance to play `nice' Simply reacting after a child has pushed/hit/bittern etc....is pretty useless. In a playgroup situation, as much as we want to chat and have a cup of tea - we actually need to help our ch'n learn the niceties of playing near/alongside each other.
A child who pushes/hits may be feeling a whole range of things in an environment which is unfamiliar, with ch'n and adults they don't know, and rules that may not be aware of.
To call a two year old a `bully' has no developmental basis - and labels the child, rather than trying to understand the reason behind the behaviour

It's very difficult isn't it? It sounds as though she has a very passive parenting style, which "might" be one of the reasons her child does what he does, because he can get away with it!
If it were my child I would be firm and remove him from the situation. A short time out every time they do something out of order. Sure, kids that age don't have impulse control or social skills, but it is OUR job to teach it to them. It doesn't sound like she is doing that effectively.
But unfortunately there is nothing much you can do . Keep your kids away as much as possible.
