Went to pick up ds from school today and he had a massinve bump and bruise on his head - that no one had noticed and hadn't noticed him crying either so was feeling a bit over protective and hormonal (read pregnant) when some little brat tried to kick him while he walked past - I felt like kicking that boy all over the playground - yes I know I am not violent and would never do it - but I was so angry - is it normal to feel like this.
Thanks for that it's sometimes hard to know if I am over reacting - do you think it would be ok to ask the teacher to keep an eye on ds and this kid - I am a bit worried he tried to do it when I was there and dh too.
Yes very normal .... many times have I fantasised about slapping my d's teacher around the face with a large, wet Cod. I've also felt like grabbing that little 'bully' by the scruff of the neck and giving them what for ..... ooooh, I feel better already and it's only 9.15 am. My dh describes me as a Lioness waiting to pounce on anyone who dares to stray too close to her babies - pregnant or not
Thanks I feel more normal now - I was remarkably restrained at the time and just glared at the little brat - well aware I had taught ds no violence at all is acceptable and couldn't do anything but set an example. It just bothers me ds is 3 and this boy was about 8 and it seemed like a giant picking on a little one. Glad to know I haven't lost the plot yet.
