Violent nursery pupil in my kid's class

January 14, 2010 1:21am CST
My only daughter, who is in nursery school, has a classmate who is very violent towards his classmates. Everyday, there will be somebody in class that he kicked, slapped, hurt. His parents were already told about it and they think that their kid was not really violent but just being playful. One time before class starts, I saw him and my daughter fighting by pressing each others shoulders really hard as if they are wrestling each other. Good that we were there to stop them. She said she just fought back because he pushed her.He has been like this since the start of school year. We have already addressed this to the school but whenever this happens, they appear just calm about it. But it worries me too much that I am thinking of transferring my kid to another class or another school but that would be a very big adjustment for my kid. What do you think I should do?

Welcome to mylot Such elements are there in every school, they are spoilt kids of some rich persons or politicians, the school authorities are usually afraid of them as they get big favor, it is better you put your daughter in some other school, though it needs lot of adjustments.. Thanks for sharing. Welcome always. Cheers. Professor

I think this kid has some kind of personality problem or some kind of behavioral problems that need to be addressed while young and should be observed thoroughly. I think the school can recommend him to a child psychologist because it may be a problem when left undiagnosed.

I think violence in a kid is not normal at all. i believe that it can be either an evidence of a disorder or the child was brought up in a violent way at his home. though children can be very destructive sometimes, if they continue to show signs of being violent and no improvement at all after discussions, etc, i think they seriously need to undergo much more supervision and even therapy. it is not a good start for other kids to encounter such behaviour and it may cause them to fear school. i believe that if there are no improvements on the child, that child should be the one to transfer (or maybe he is not mature enough to go to school yet). i think if the child continues to become out of hand, there is no other choice but to drop him or other kids' lives would be at risk. we are talking about nursery here so if other kids are exposed to such behaviours, there is a great chance that they may develop fear on being at school or may get encouraged to immitate that behaviour. I hope everything gets better. :D
