Many parents have said they would not come if the child was there as he chokes and smothers the other children.
With my child, he put his knee into his throat and laughed and although I pulled him off, it left bruises.
I have tried to bring it to the parents attention and so have others, in a gentle way and with some help from a therapist as my son had gotten very terrified to the point where he had nightmares and became hysterical if he heard the other child's name or saw their car.
They did not respond well to any of us bringing it up.
Normally this wouldn't be an issue as it was easy for me to handle the situation in my home. I stated that unless the child was supervised constantly, they would not be able to bring him, but they also attend other local AP type meetings and there are several of us who have opted to stop going out of concern for our own child's safety.
This really isn't working for many of us as we also need support and our children love interaction with other children in the groups.
If parents are unapproachable, then is it acceptable for the parents to say to the child, please don't play with my child, or my child is unable to play with you right now.
I don't want to find ourselves in a situation where each time our children get into a great moment of play, we have to move them away from the child who is hurting them.
In other words, help!!! What is the right thing to do?
