My friend came to visit me today , her baby is a week younger then mine , ( they are 9 months ) ...
Today while we were talking , her daughter and my son were playing with toys on the floor , she took one out of my sons hand and he started to cry , so she picks her daughter up and pops her leg really hard ! I felt so bad for her , but idk what to say to my friend. should I stay out of it or try to explain she is only 9 months and hasn't really learned how to share yet ?
help!

Do you mean your friend hit her baby? I wouldn't know what to say but maybe she won't listen at this point. It can either set her off or not. So its risky to bring it up.

It's sad and would really bug me but I wouldn't say anything to her. It's her child she gets to chose how she parents.

I would of told her its okay, babies don't know how to share until the are 2 or something,
also, if you hit the baby, then the baby will learn that its okay to hit others.

if she is your friend she wont mind listening to your advice....

also, if you just take something out of your kid hands without asking, they will learn that behaviour too.

I would ask if she has found that that is more effective then telling her not to do something in a calm and regular conversation type of way. But yeh, every one parents differently
