Playground politics

While at a playgroup with my daughters it became quite clear that some children have no playground etiquette. I’m certain that there is not one parent who likes their child to be bullied. The only smiling parent seems to be the one whose child is making everybody else’s child miserable.

So you find yourself in a position where you have to break the news very gently to a dad or mom that their child is the sandpit bully. Fortunately many respond positively and call their offspring to order. However there is that really small percentage who make up a dozen excuses as to why their brat is behaving in this fashion.

Kids will be kids but adults should always be there to guide them towards acceptable behaviour.
