Little D the Lady Terror

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!

Maybe ask her if she likes it if people hit her... and she will surely say NO. Then explain why she shouldn't hit her classmates...

Sometimes, it is hard to get through but I can assure you that your little lady will grow out of it. Hahaha, she is truly a lady.

Hi nomadicmom
yes, we have tried that asking her, but it doesnt seem to work.

Yes Judy
I am sure she will grow out of it, but I just dont enjoy being called by the teacher every week to be told my little D has hurt some one!

Hmmm... lol, too bad you sound like the modern mum. I think if we did it way back then and got spilled on, our parents will hit us. HA HA.

Hmm.. in the olden days, parents had a more effective deterrant, you whack people, you get the rotan!

Hi Jonzz

I would do that if little D was older, but she is only 2 and a half. I would be accused of child abuse if I used the rotan on her!!
