I taught my ds to hold his hand up in a stop sign and say really loudly and firmly "stop, dont hit me". Then I had him practise on me half a dozen times and even practised in the car on the way to daycare. I have since witnessed him use this tactic on kids that have hurt him in the playground. While it doesn't always work or even deter at least my ds feels empowered to be able to something. It seems to work for us.

Bullying? After one incident? I don't think so! Just tell the carers to keep an eye on them.

This can happen a lot at childcare. I think it's a bit harsh to call the child a bully based on one incident. All you can do is take it up with the staff. Mind you there's not much they can do about it really except maybe have a chat to the child but it's a bit late after so much time has gone past... I'd take it up with them anyway and hopefully it doesn't repeat itself.
