Default being picked on

How does your baby handle being picked on by other kids? Do they cry, fight back, push back, take back?

We were at the store today and a little boy was so mean to Joy. She turned and ran straight to her Daddy crying. She is so sweet and sensitive. I just don't want her to be picked on.

I feel lucky with this because Charlotte will fight back if someone is taking something from her, she's a little toughy. My other daughter used to get beat on at this age and it was terrible to watch. Even though I would never teach my kids to hit part of me is happy that Charlotte is strong because at this age kids can be pretty mean without knowing.

Nolan is in daycare and has been since he was 8 weeks old so he knows a thing or two about being picked on... He is ALWAYS the youngest in his group because physically he's too advanced to be in with his age group (i.e. crawling and pulling up when others his age are just rolling barely). He is pretty relaxed about it. If someone is taking something from him either he will fight back if he REALLY wants it or just let them take it and go get something else.

He has also been bit and shoved a few times but he just lets it slide... he's a pretty calm kid when it comes to that. And I agree with pp - I would never teach him to hit but I might feel a little happy if he shoved a kid back or bit a child because they bit him...

Having Kendall as a big sister has probably helped Avery learn to fight for something if Kendall tries taking it away. I haven't noticed it with other children. Then again, I stay away from places where there are a lot of children, especially in the winter. We have small playdates at our house or friends' houses. It should be interesting to watch this progress.

Kaitlyn starts picking on Nicole and Nicole gets aggravated. She mostly will make her "leave me alone" noise and pushes her away.
