Do you tell the parent when their child is misbehaving?

My son came home from school today so upset. A boy was hitting and shoving him on the bus. I know boys will be boys, but my boy just turned 6. He doesn't know how to deal with people not being nice to him. I am going to talk with the other mom about it, but am worried that it will just make things worse. What do you think?

I would try talking to her and if she is reasonable you should be able to work things out. If she is unreasonable, back off and talk to the school to see if they can help.

Absolutely tell the parents, the teaches, principle you name it. My son came home with a black eye, a kid pounded on him after they got off the bus. I marched him and a friend who saw it all over to the kids house, the mom said boys will be boys. I was really ticked. I talked to a friend who is a teacher she said I should have called the school. Luckily it never happened again.

It depends on how they are misbehaving as to wether or not I tell

It depends on the situation and the age of the child. If appropriate in a given situation, I might talk to the child first before going to their parent, but many people think that is stepping out of bounds. In the case you mention, I would talk with the parent.

I think if you talk to her the right way you should be fine. If you know her at all, it would be better. It is hard to approach a stranger about their child misbehaving.

Yes, I think you should tell the parent(s). They will never know otherwise. If they are going to correct a problem so it doesn't become a habit then tell them.

I haven't yet, but we haven't really been in a situation that required it so far. My daughter is only 18mos, so I'm sure in the coming years, we will hit this situation. I think it would be fine to tell the other parent. They should know what their kid is doing when they aren't around. If they don't know, they can't correct the bad behavior. Hopefully by bringing it up now, it will avoid more problems in the future. If the boy does correct his behavior, then you've had a hand in making him a better person!

I do when it is serious, but not when it is more petty.

I do but I don;t blame the [parent and I try to make it sound a nonchalant as possible hoping they get the picture.
