Hi there, its a sensitive topic I agree but yes we need to give our kids the right to raise their opinions. This will help to analyze situations and also let us know on their way of thinking. With regards to the teasing situation, I think you did the right thing to confront it. Females should be respected! In fact every person should be respected. We all have differences, but putting it in a right way is very important these days. Now with regards to tolerance question, it might vary in every situation. There is no single answer for it. For e. g. when you see your daughter is not getting a chance to play the swing, you can set a sharing concept in front of them. I have faced the same thing when my son used to go to park. He used to wait and never used to get a chance. Then I intervened once and asked the kids to follow the queue and sharing concept. Next time when he went, he himself waited for sometime and then asked them to follow the queue concept as its common park and not an individual one. Kids need a way to be shown. :) Teaching them to be aggressive is never a solution.

Really surprised to hear that parents of those boys came knocking your door. We need to teach our boys to respect the other gender... If that lesson is not taught at home, I doubt if they will ever learn it in their life time...

Very apt question, more than handling children, it becomes difficult handling educated parents of the children. My wife too experienced such situation while picking 3 yr old child from playgroup. One another child was kicking him and when asked you should not do this, his father rudely replied back, please mind your own business.
