We were having a play date at a local eatery. The kids were playing in the indoor playground area and my friend's daughter pushed my daughter down the stairs (they are both 3) and as a result, my daughter's arm is broken. I understand accidents, but my friends daughter had already gotten in trouble for hitting some other little girl several times. This little girl hits alot, I have never seen my daughter hit anyone (I am not niave, I am sure it has happened, but I have never SEEN it happen).
So anyway, she feels bad but hasn't done anything to correct the problem. She also hasn't offered to pay for our medical bills (er copay and followup specialist copays) she is also missing the second half of her swimming lessons. I didn't really think about her paying for this until another friend said "Shes paying for it right?"
Anyway, what are your thoughts? What should I do about the bills, our friendships, our kids?

I would def ask her to pay anything out of pocket. It's only right for her to do so since her kid as past problems. Yes accidents happen but parents need to be responsible and teach their children. If she doesn't pay, take it to small claims court.
