Well I was in the same position last week - but it was my boy who did the pushing
This was the first time ever that I've seen him push someone, and same thing, I dont know if he was provoked or not, there was a toy that they were both playing with and I assume neither kid wanted to share- but that doesn't matter... Pushing is NOT ok!
I was mortified, virtually in tears that my ds (turned 3 a month ago) did this.
We went over to the little girl he pushed and apologized profusely. I swear I almost throttled ds. I was hurt, sad and totally embarrassed that my normally placid kid did that to someone. We left straight awY - no more playing for that day and he had to sit in the pram rather than walk.
So anyways I think the least any parent could do is apologize to the other child and mum. Whether the child understands that they did the wrong thing is irrelevant.

I was talking about it to my Mum later and she was telling me I shouldn't have said 'It's alright' as it wasn't really 'alright' and DS was quite hurt/upset. Mum reckons I should've just said nothing and concentrated on calming down DS and left it at that. I felt bad for the other Mum though so I was just trying to sort of downplay the situation! Very awkward really.

I'd say that's not nice or something if the parents didn't do anything. If my children pushed theywoukd b in time out and the othrt child would b allowed a turn on whatever the fight was over first. The have to learn negative consequences for things like pushing hitting etc. I know whst u mean though. I hate it when kids r mean to mine and DS 3 seems to think he's 13 not three and will try and hold his own no matter how old the other child is! DD will usually just cry!
