The goal is to dispel myths and get facts out to parents, teachers and the general public.

Don’t Stew – Ask Sue Parenting Q & A

Question ‘Dear Sue I’m worried because even though my son Tom is only 2, he is a pusher. He pushes other children over all the time, and yesterday in the play park he dragged a little girl off the chute by her t-shirt. I was so embarrassed and I couldn’t apologise enough. Compared to my friend’s girls, my son seems much more energetic and my friends are always commenting about how much energy Tom has. I take him out to soft play centres every day, mainly to tire him out, but I’m now becoming anxious and dreading it, because I know as soon as I take my eyes off him, even for a second, he will push another child. HELP!’
