Would be interested to see if anyone is in the same boat – I have a loving beautiful 2 and a half year old boy who turns aggressive towards kids he doesn’t know out in public but is an angel at home. It’s starting to get embarrassing and upsetting that I have to constantly take him home every time he bullies another child, and am copping abuse off mothers even though I run to defend the other child involved every time! And remove mine from the situation. He has grown up playing with his older cousins and ‘pretend fighting’ but now he seems to think this is ok to do with other kids. He has been bullied a lot himself at play centres and I would sympathise with the mothers, but now he has turned into a non sharing bully himself. We have tried so many different ways to get through to him, how wrong this is and that no one will want to be friends if he keeps doing it but he doesn’t understand. He is extremely over active also. Do I take him to a doctor or someone who can help me out? as I’ve tried everything and am now getting anxiety before leaving the house. As I said he is beautiful at home, always giving lots of cuddles, ‘I love you’s’ and is very caring. I’m sick of him being looked at like a devil as he really is a lovely child at home and with people he knows. He also goes to playgroup twice a week for interaction with children and is usually ok there. Please help.
