Quoting The Tsukuno family:" I worked in a preschool setting almost everyday the same kid would beat on or taunt another child. That ... [snip!] ... an it normal because in reality it's not. Talk to the school board get it fixed or move her to a different class or school."



"Worked" or have an actual education in early childhood development (and I'm not talking about some bullshit certificate program)? Of course it's not OK. However, children who retaliate physically at age 1 to at the most 4 do so because they are being triggered to do so. 1 1/5 to early 3's is the peak time for physical reactions from chidlren. They react physically because the language development is not completely there and they crave a reaction. Which is why children under 4 need to be supervised closely. If a child is a known antagonist they need to have a shadow, find the trigger, then work to correct the behavior through modification techniques.



Now what you're talking about isn't normal. Not at all. But hitting/biting/kicking/pulling hair, etc. Totally normal for that age group.

My degree is in elementary education and was a student teacher in preschool classes. I've seen it all.

Thank you for your evasive and vauge answer. In other words, you haven't completed an education in early childhood development and have no f**king clue what you're talking about :wink:
