yesterday i was at a play centre and there was a bigger kid, prob around 4 or so who was playing with a nuber board thingy and it was making noise so my curious lil boy waddles over. the big kid elbowed and elbowed to push my son out of the way. Of course Ash thought it was a game and persisited only to be hit in the face by the big kid! I was shocked! Ash looked at me and then at the kid but didnt cry ( tough lil bugger he is) then I told the kid that wasnt very nice and Ash turned around to get onto a trike and as he is half way on an even bigger kid maybe 4/5 ran up, launched ash and took the bike! Ash jumped up and chased him and tried to push him back. BY this stage i wasnt goin to stop him! let himd efend himself. I have n older kids so I am just wondering if this is normal behaviour? Am i being too protective or are these kids just naughty? Doea a 4/5 yr old know its not right to hit and push? especially younger children? or am i being naive?
