Little D hit another classmate in school on Tuesday. This has been happening too often for my liking .... it happens at least once a week . I have tried talking to her, and have to constantly remind her not to hit or scratch her friends.
M-i-l decided to have a word with little D on the matter this week. This is what transpired between them:
M-i-l: D, did you hit V in school today?
Little D: Yes, I hit him and he cried.
M-i-l: You mustn't hit your friends, you know. it is very painful for them.
Little D: Ok grandma.
M-i-l: Their mummies will feel very sad to hear that you hit them, you know.
Little D: But Grandma, he shouted at me. I am a lady. He should not shout at ladies.
M-i-l could not help but burst out laughing!!
If you have any suggestions on what I can do to help stop her from hurting others, please share. My other 2 kids used to be victims. They never hurt anyone. I am not sure if Little D is doing it because when she was younger, she used to be a victim of her cousin - hit, scratched and bitten - now she is dishing out what she got!
