Does a 2-yr-old even know what bullying is?


My kid was accused of this recently...I believe she was just rough housing like she does with her daddy at home. I agree if rough housing is not handled soon, it could turn into bullying. However, I'm handling it everyday and she's been even better when playing with other kids lately (even sharing). But a toddler bullying (an intent to hurt on purpose)? I researched that the earliest age a kid can bully is 4-yrs-old. What do you think?

    Some children that age have the tendency to become a bully. Some have just not been taught the proper boundaries and others are seeking attention. Regardless, teachers and parents need to be aware and to talk to these children to find the cause.

    Well put duffsmom. I have actually been surprised with my husband on the matter though...more and more he's been telling "no" when it comes to her being too rough.
