What do you want the Mum to do? Her child is under two, and she's already working with the SS behavioural team. She can't exactly ground him and stop his pocket money.

I do know that it's awful when your child gets hurt, I really do. But at this age, they're all so wee, the best that nursery can do is closely monitor the aggressor so they can step in as soon as possible. I think the word 'bullying' is ascribing far too much motivation to a really little child.

The mother is probably already embarrassed and unhappy. It is very hard to stop toddlers from being rough, if that is what they are like. It might be your ds being rough in a few months.

One of the reasons I was hesitant about putting my children in nursery when young was because I expected that they would be hurt by other children. It goes with the territory.
