If your child has accidentally hurt another child at school, it’s important to take the following steps:
Apologize: Encourage your child to apologize to the other child and to the adults involved.
Check on the other child: Ensure that the child who was hurt is okay and seek medical attention if necessary.
Report the incident: Report the incident to the teacher or school administrator so that they are aware of what happened and can take appropriate actions.
Talk to your child: Discuss the incident with your child and explain why it’s important to be careful and respectful towards others.
Take responsibility: If necessary, take responsibility for your child’s actions and offer to make things right with the other child or their family.
It’s important to handle these situations with empathy, responsibility, and an open dialogue between all parties involved.
