DEARSUGAR Needs Your Help: Control Your Kid

DEARSUGAR and Playgroup Patrol Patty need your help. How do you approach a mother who won't take responsibility for controlling her kid?

Dear Sugar
I am involved in a play group where there are five different Mom's and eight kids. We meet once a week for four hours and my child always comes home hurt/crying from one specific boy who bullies the other children. He bosses them around, plays rough, hits them and steals their toys while they are playing with them.

The play group would be wonderful and harmonious if it weren't for this kid. The mother just sits by and says that "boys will be boys," and does nothing about it. I am trying to teach my son to be well mannered and this kind of behavior isn't acceptable. What should I do? Play Group Patrol Patty
