    Default What would you have done?

    DS is pretty verbal, he strings sentences along. Still needs a translator (me) at times.

    Ps. So sweet of him to ask if others are OK

    I have firmly (not yelling, but speaking strongly) told a young child "don't push, that's not nice" before when her mother was not identifiable (big group) and the child in question was repeatedly pushing my own. It just came out - mumma bear style. To be honest I've never considered that the other mum could be offended by that. I'm not going to watch my child be pushed/hurt/intimidated by others and wait around for the parent to step up.

    Not saying this is what happened in your case, OP. I agree that you both handled it just fine (I don't like the word naughty either. But it's really just semantics and nothing that major IMHO). I don't think you over reacted.

    Sorry only read the OP as I am time poor and lazy lol.

    In this instance I would be miffed if I were you.

    You were present. And were proactive in parenting.

    If noone was around and this happened I would get why the mum would say something. But to do so and override the parent is not ok.

    Jip, I have been there as well, if it was my child that was in the wrong and I was handling it I would take offence to the other mother reprimanding my child. That been said I have been in similar situation with my son been on the receiving end and the other parent just ignores it or pretends not to see what is going which just infuriates me and I do then tell the other child to mind their manners
