Things You Can't Change


One of the moms in our play date group does not believe in disciplining her children. Her 4 year old son has meltdowns, takes toys from other children, and BITES when he doesn’t get his way. When these things happen the mother will ask him to apologize and say something like “oh buddy that wasn’t nice, you hurt Mikey, can you say sorry for hurting your friend?” When her son refuses she simply tries to distract his victim with another toy or snacks. How would you handle this? I’ve suggested your books but she dismisses the idea saying “you can’t just punish a 3/4 year old”. Help!
