Most of my friends are mothers and our children are all 8 and under. Sometimes when we have kids over, a child will lie on my child. How should I handle this?
For example, we had a birthday party today and child displayed an inappropriate behavior. My child told me and the child's mother. The other child then said my child pushed her. I honestly didn't believe child did it. I did talk to her about how we treat friends. The other mother took no action.
After the party, my other child was telling me about the inappropriate behavior the other kid did. I asked if his sister hit the other girl and he said no. He had no reason to lie, because my kids actually love to snitch each other out. He would have told me what his sister did, and has done so before.
This is not the first time this has happened or the only child this has occurred with. How do I handle it when it comes up?

This happened to my DS two years ago. He plays soccer and one of the girls on another team accused my DS of throwing a rock and hitting her in the face. Come to find out (from 3 other kids & 2 parents), my son was on the field at the time! & I posted this ? recently because the girl lives 5 min. away from me & her mom works @ a local dollar store & when I'm there, she refers to my older 2 kids as bad & mean & only fusses over my youngest DD. Long story short, a mom suggested that the next time I'm there and she says this again, say, "my kids aren't mean or bad, but how's your little liar doing?" lol. I haven't been there or seen her lately, but I plan on it if it happens again. I agree it needs to be addressed & if nothing comes of it, you might think distancing yourself & her children from you & yours & see how that goes. GL!
