One time at soft play my 17 month old got pushed off a Peppa Pig ride on car and hit the ground face first. Did I yell and shout at the boy who did it, no, I simply consoled my daughter and told the little boy that although my daughter may be annoying him (as he put it) it’s not nice to push and by pushing that had hurt her head and she was now quite upset. The little boy’s gran was sitting close by and didn’t even come over to apologies but I didn’t care, she didn’t seem that bothered and I’d already said my piece (not shouted) so as far as I was concerned it was done and dusted. No need to freak out about it or hold a grudge. The little boy then trotted off to play with my son and all was fine. My daughter had a little bump on her head but is wasn’t something a quick ice pack and some cuddles couldn’t fix.
Luckily for my son and unluckily for you I was standing within ear shot. I immediately asked what the problem was however you proceeded to completely ignore me (not even any eye contact) and return to your table. Well that just isn’t good enough is it, not after you’ve shouted in the face of a boy who probably had no idea what you were even talking about. I could have been dignified in my words with you but your sheer rudeness meant I had to shut you down and give you a piece of my mind. And guess what, I’m not even sorry! I hope you learned a valuable lesson that day, I get it that your children are precious to you mine are to me, however you’re the adult. You’re the one that has to show responsibility as well as being accountable for you’re actions and you let yourself down. I’m not happy with the way I reacted either but after observing the way you were acting I thought maybe it’s the only reaction you’ll understand.
Hopefully next time you’ll think twice before you act.
