My 4 yrs old daugther was hit by my friend's son. She has a wound beside her eyes and she cried very badly. At first I panic and search for that boy and I said to myself I will beat him if ever I saw him. When I've known it was my friend's child I just close my fist and hold my temper and keep quiet then turn away. If you were in my shoes what will you do?

it is natural for us to get angry when something like this happens to our daughter. however, it will always be wise to hold our temper and think of better ways to deal with the problem at hand.

i would have confronted the child who had beaten my daughter. i will talk to him and ask him why he did it. then i will make him promise never to do it again. after that, i will make some efforts to be able to talk to hte child's parents. it is important that the parents will know how their child has been behaving in school. i will ask the parents to talk to their child about rather than punish him severely. severe punishments given to a child will only make him all the more hateful. i am saying this here because, this has always been my way of dealing with school bullies at school.

You know children are all very little. They are too little to tell what's right and wrong. Please give them some time to grow up. If such kind of things happen, fighting doesn't help anything but make it worse. You have to talk to this kid's mother. If she is an understanding mother, she will teach her child well and won't let such kind of thing happen again. The most important is to let the children understand fighting is wrong. As parents, we can't encourage them to fight anyone, also we can't take a revenge. Otherwise they will learn the wrong behaviors from us.

You should talk to your friend and tell her what her son did. She would then scold her son, spank him, or ground him for what he did. But you have to be calm and not yell or scream because then your friend would think you are lying even though the evidence is before her. Besides your friend would want to know if her son was a danger to other children.
