With the weather warming up and blue skies here to stay, I’ve found myself out and about with Skeeter more frequently. We spend a lot of time at the park and on weekend play dates with friends. And the more we get out, the more I run into misbehaving kids.
I don’t expect children to behave 100% of the time. Anyone who saw me standing in front of the grocery store with a toddler screaming “no store!” yesterday would know that I’m not the perfect mother and my toddler definitely acts out. But when we’re in public places, I make an effort to ensure my child isn’t negatively affecting others.
All too often, I find that when the other child is misbehaving, the parents are nowhere to be seen. So, the question is raised…
“How should I react when another child is being mean to mine?”
