i would talk to the other girls parents about it and see if they could get their kid out of the bad habit

the mother of the chil was there i know that thay dont know right from wrong but the child does it to all the children my point is if the mother knows that her daughter does it to other children then surley the mother shouldnt take her child to a playgroupe as it is unfaire on all the other babies

Hi Jodie,

given the age of these children, and you say she is younger than your daughter, they have no concept of right and wrong yet and that little girl did not know that she was doing something that was going to cause your daughter pain. Hair pulling is normal at this age. The best course of action you could take would be to remove your daughter from the situation, comfort her, and politely ask the mother of the other child to keep a better eye on her because she pulled your daughters hair and while you know she didn't do it to hurt your daughter it did hurt her. Being diplomatic is the best course of action. Good luck.

If I was there I would have reacted. If my lil girl was under 3 I would have told the other little girl off. I wouldn't care what other people there said as she would have deserved to be told off. If my child was over 3 I probably would sit back and let her sort it out for herself. (unless it ot out of hand) I think at playgroup you are there the whole time with your child, so I would watch to see what happens and react if necessary. If it is like daycare where you drop your kid off and leave I might think twice about leaving her there. If she seems miserable at the end of the day I would find a better place for her. You can always help her, just sometimes by helping your child you have to to nothing.
