A friend of mine that's in our baby group has an older son (3 and a half) who is very difficult. He explodes when things don't go his way which is about every five minutes - LITERALLY. There rest of our babies are anywhere from 6 months to a year. Everyone in our group is cool and very AP. Yesterday one of the babies who is walking went over to my friend's older son and tried to play with his tricycle and he totally freaked and swatted at the baby. He does things like this all the time. My friend did nothing except mildly called over to him to stop. I'm worried because I know if he swats at my son and she says nothing, I'm afraid I'm going to go off. How do I handle this situation if it happens to me? Can I say something to her son or is that out of line? What's wrong with some discipline?
