First time another kid is mean to yours...

How do you handle that feeling of anger and like your heart has been ripped out (just me?) that first time another child makes yours cry?

She’s so little & sensitive, and I’m fairly protective (not over protective) in the sense that she was emotionally abused & neglected by her Dad as a baby (when I wasn’t around. He’s loooong gone now. Very long story) and so I’m a little more protective of her feelings than maybe other mums are? Just a guess of course.

Am I the only one that feels like screaming at the other child? Obviously I never ever would. Just in that fleeting moment, my heart breaks. Then I come to my senses. I don’t let my DD see me making it into a huge deal. I don’t want to raise a precious little bugger on a fluffy cloud. I just can’t help the way I feel and hope I’m not the only one???

Please don’t flame me. You don’t know the full history. I just want to know if anyone else feels like this, that’s all.
