That, and babies are delicious while being quite nutritious. This is the main reason why older women kiss babies and say things like "I could just eat you up". They are sampling the wares and opening price negotiations with the parents.

Actually, the way the child reacted, could have harmed the baby. Imagine if OP fell or took a well placed stick to the gut. Alas, the road to hell is paved by good intentions.

No I have to agree that OP could have meant that they were neighbors for 4 years. I dont think thats the case but I can see how some on might think that. And 4 year old kids know how to cling to things. when my little bro was four, it took bother my parents, me, and my uncle to pull him off a street sign because he didnt want to go inside.

My defendant is very sorry for hitting you with a stick. He's very upset right now because he's missing the "Dora the explorer" marathon right now. He would apologize for his actions, but he's barely able to talk due to this disease called Infantenza.

A lot of younger kids don't quite grasp just how strong they are and thus don't have the ability per se to grasp or touch things gently. That's why you hear stories about toddlers giving bodybuilders black eyes or toddlers breaking things. Then again, I'm not an expert on the muscular and neurological systems of young children, so you may want to consult someone who actually went to school for that.

I worked as an assistant in a school for a while and it often took a couple of people to stop a child. It's kind of an unfair fight because the kid is going at it full force but the grown ups do their best to avoid hurting them. I think adults are more aware of the damage they can do, so they're more careful. If a pregnant lady was involved though, I'd probably have cared less about the child because I would think she was more at risk from being seriously hurt than the kid was.

You also have to remember that he has a stick. If you can't grab a hold of the stick right away it's not gonna be easy to stop him while also getting hit by said stick

It can be difficult picking up a four-year old if they are fighting you. They move their little bodies every which way trying to get down. Like 32 mentioned above, you do this while trying to keep the child from falling.

Yeah, 4 year olds can be squirmy little bastards. They flail about and it can be pretty difficult to get a hold on them if they're fighting. This could obviously be a good thing in a bad situation (for the child), but when you need to stop a kid from harming someone else, it's a detriment. It's kind of like trying to pick up a very energetic large fish.

Well when I was a kid my mom told me that babies are bought in stores and inserted in the tummy to grow from baby dolls into infants. I guess that could be a good explanation for the mean time?

Thats....a terrifying explanation. It really isn't that big a deal to just tell them the truth. You don't have to put in all the gory details but you don't have to lie to them either. They probably won't care much anyway - it's just another fact of life to them. Unless, of course, you freak out and make it a big scary taboo subject.
