I'd tell her that her behavior is unacceptable & embarrassing to herself & her family. Then I'd say if I hear that you went back to that poor girl & harassed her about telling her Mother what you did then there is going to be Holy Hell to pay.Follow through with some form of discipline like grounding or by taking something away.
You know, my Parents never hit me or grounded me. But I feared them & conducted myself so as not to embarrass myself or my family. That is what I am instilling in my kids. You are the Mother, you should never fear talking to your children by worrying about the consequences later. If they do not respect you then they will not respect themselves or anyone else.
