Ok...my son was over at the neighbor's playing (he's almost 7)..I was out front talking with the other moms...my son comes around saying a grown-up wants to talk to me. I go back there and the dad of the son who lives behind the neighbor is irate saying my son hit his 3 year old in the head and he is inside crying and won't come out.
I stay calm and ask my son what happened. He insists he didn't do anything...maybe it was an accident?? He still says he didn't do anything. I think, well it was prob just an accident-my son really isn't the type to slug anyone-esp a 3 year old-but I have him apologize just to end it.
My question is---this guy (whom I never met) was a bit irrational...there was no blood...no one got hurt....my son was not at his house, the 3 year old was at my neighbors (unsupervised btw)..we don't really know what happened...but the guy looked like he wanted to hit my son.

Well, you weren't watching your son either so why get on to him about it?
Really? The kid is 7, a lot different than leaving a 3 year old!

SaraP, there is a big difference in a 3 year old and a 7 year old.

So, SaraP, in your logical thinking a 21 year old (or however old you are) doesn't know everything either. So, should we say as a society that since 21 year old's don't know everything then they shouldn't have children?
