How to deal with mean playgroup friends

Dana - posted on 03/18/2012 ( 2 moms have responded )




We belong to a playgroup and my child is the youngest. She is 1 and the other kids are 2ish. One of the 2yr olds is mean to my child every single time. I have to watch them like a hawk, but as soon as i turn my back she hurts my baby. The mother of this child used to try to discipline her child when it happened, but now, she just has this attitude like if she didn't see what happened she's not going to punish her. I am good friends with all the mothers and don't want to stop going, but my baby is getting hurt, and she's also learning bad behavior. What should i do?

Tell her her child is hurting your child when you see her doing it.

All I can say is keep her away from the child. If the mom isn't willing to step up to the plate anymore than you're going to have to.
