I moved my son away but after a while the kid would not leave him alone so I took him by the arm, dug my nails in deep and yanked him away.
Instead of hurting the kid I sould of just done the 'Oh for **** sake' speach to his stupid mum who sists there saying 'no sweetheart, gentle darling' as her kids bashes a 6month old baby over the head with a toy.

I have intervened before. DD used to go to Playgroup with a horrible kid that always picked on her and was the worst influence EVER! We stopped going to events he was going to and just avoided him as much as possible at Playgroup.
Thank gosh he doesn't go anymore.

I agree with PP- adult responsibilty is required here. I often intervene- whether it is my child going overboard, or another child causing issues.
Just an observation- don't think this sort of thing in young children should be labelled 'bullying'. The term is overused, in my humble opinion...

I remember taking DS to a indoor playground with a friend and her daughter once. A random woman's son who looked to be about 4 walked up with a big ride on toy with it raised over his head and every intention of thumping DS (he was only about 18 months old at the time) with it. DS was facing the opposite direction and hadn't interacted with the child at all the entire time we were there.
I roared "Don't even think about it!". The child dropped the toy and backed off real quick. The mother just glanced up and then went back to her coffee. I was fuming because had I not looked at that exact moment DS could have been really badly hurt and she did nothing. He'd done it to a couple of other children already and she'd just rolled her eyes every time he did it as if to say "What can I do?".
If that was my DS that did that to another child he'd be getting a yelling and a time out! I didn't take him back to a play center at all after that, too gunshy that someone's un-attended child would hurt him .
