I took 3 yo DS to the playground and he'd only been playing for a few minutes before he came running back upset that another boy shouted at him (sensitive soul). Normally I would tell him not to worry, the boy was very rude to do that and to play somewhere else but that day I told that if someone shouts at him, shout back (except if it's me of course!). Not the most responsible advice but I really felt bad for him!
What do you say to your kids? Do you interfere at the playground if other kids are rude to your kid? I tend to let them sort it out amongst themselves but also feel bad for my boy!

Usually i just let them sort it out themselves. If my kid comes to me ill tell them to ignore other kid and play somewhere else, if kid keeps following & doing it i might step in and politely say something like 'please dont push its not nice' and then hover for a few mins before moving back to watch - usually works

Getting involved in children's arguments...rookie mistake! I stay out of it and tell them to keep away from the other kid if it offends them. Seriously, kids can be a bit mean but it's normal to a certain extent (barring feral bogans who are just nasty). I've seen other kids say stuff to DS, but I've seen him give it back as well so it's just pointless getting involved.
