Maybe some child you don't know grabs your kid's shovel at the park. Maybe a classmate at school calls her a name. Maybe your child comes home complaining of the same person always picking on him. If someone is mean to your child, it can be easy to want to summon the calvary to demand all wrongs be made right.
What do you do? Do you approach the other parent? If it occurs at school, should you approach the teacher or administrator first? Or do you just stay out of it? Do the ages of the children involved influence your choice? Let me know your thoughts!
