Would you approach a kid who you overheard making fun of your child?
What would you do it you had just overheard a kid making fun of your child? Do you think it would be wrong to say something. What if you said nothing but gave that child a stern look that said you knew what he/she just said?
Ask the child who gave him the right to make fun of others.
I would most likely say something to them if I had a chance to as I think they need to learn that it is not acceptable behavior and sometimes it can have more effect coming from a stranger than family , the least I would do is give them a stern look.
Absolutely! You don't have to be mean or hurtful, but a simple " that was not called for " or the like would suffice.
I would talk to his parents and request that they speak with him in a loving and non-harsh manner to let him know that it hurts people's feelings when he does it. That way it won't have any repercussions on your child by making the verbal abuse escalate "because you got me in trouble".
I would probably say something to the child about how inappropriate it was to make fun of others. Then my daughter would tell me later that I made it worse because now the kid would be mad. I figure if they don't now it is wrong, how can they learn not to do it. She tells me that it is worse when someone tells them that they shouldn't do that. They take it out on your child. If I go to their parents, it is even worse. It is like a loaded gun. No one wins. Bullies just keep doing what they do without any stopping. Our children have to stand up for themselves to make it stop.
100% yes. Imagine if your child knows you overheard but didn't say anything? Your kid is going to think you don't care. I would tell the kid who was making fun of my kid to apologize to right away and I would also have a word with that kids parents.
yes! without hesitation I would approach the child, and if need be their parent.
I might, depending on the situation. I try to let my children handle their own business, but if it is out of control or my child does not have a handle on the situation, I will say something to the other child. However, I will not yell at that child or be mean, just try to get on his or her level and talk to them. Sometimes that is why kids are so mean because they do not get much attention at home, and having someone to talk to can make a huge difference in a child.
actually, I'd take the opposite approach-
I'd say to my own kid, in front of the mean one, something like "Well, it looks like he wasn't brought up very well!"
it shows your kid you're on his side.
