Not a bad idea, considering that this can happen! I had never even imagined it as a possibility.
|I wouldn't have imagined this specifically, but I have had kids at the playground swear something is theirs and their parent says after "He/she has one just like it at home!" Which you know, is often true, but they can't remember if they left theirs at home or not.|
While I don't condone what this mom did or didn't do, or what the child did or didn't do, I can see a really bad potential outcome from such a situation.
I don't think I would have physically touched the other child. You never know what a person is going to do now days.
I know I would have flipped out if some adult had snatched a toy from my child's hands (I totally would have given the toy back, but just saying).
I am kinda surprised by all those here saying how good it was to be done. Especially after the other thread, just the other day, about strangers acosting someone in the subway.
But, that is just me.
I am not usually a confrontational person, and would not likely take any chances.
