Yesterday, while trick or treating, several of my son's friends were making fun of my son's name in an unpleasant manner. The mom of these other kids were there but they did not notice this behavior or perhaps chose to ignore it.

I was unsure how to react in the above situation and would appreciate some tips for the future.

You step up and tell the kid to cut it out. Then you talk to the parent and ask them to teach their kid some manners. When you get home, talk to your kid about what happened. Let your child know that it is never okay to make fun of someone, no matter the reason, and that if it happens again, your child should not be afraid to seek assistance from an adult.

+1 You said what we would all like to do, but many are not brave enough and too afraid of stepping on another parent's toes.
