20Harder: Other People's Kids
Unless you live in a bubble, there is a pretty good chance you are going to find yourself in some awkward situations involving a little Johny or Suzy who can't seem to stop throwing dirt at your kids on the playground.
So here is the scoop. No matter how well behaved, polite, friendly, gentle, and kind your kids may be, you will likely still have to deal with some less than pleasant kids.
We're talking other people's kids.
The older and more active your kids become, the worse it gets. You teach your
child to be kind and to share and treat others the way they want to be treated and that is great. But unfortunately not every parent does this. Your kids are going to encounter some kids that are just "not nice" ( because we can't call kids names).
Having your kids picked on by other kids is one of a parent's worst fears. Nobody wants to see or hear about their kids being hurt, ever. Hearing about it happening at daycare or school is bad enough but when it happens in a setting where both kid's parents are present it can lead to some uncomfortable conversations.
The hardest part of dealing with other people's kids is that it means you have to deal with other kid's parents.
