Hard one! I say yes but to a certain degree. I guess I don't think it is okay to enforce a punishment, but I do think it is okay to say something to them and/or to their parents. If they are dropping bad words at the playground, you bet I'll say something! If they push my child down, yep, I'll say something then too. It all depends on the situation and the child(ren) involved.

I agree that is would depend on the severity.

I watched the segment on the Today show and the two experts both made good points.
