  • i do not think you did any wrong whatsoever! If it went down exactly as you stated it, than you stated the facts as they are!!! that is all that matters!!

  • I dont think you need to say your sorry. He is your son and you, as his mother, have the right to protect him. If you did not like the way she was pulling on your sons arm then you have every right to tell her to stop.

  • I probably wouldn't have been as nice as you were. If I don't give permission to discipline my child to someone, and they are not family (and for me a girlfriend is NOT family), they DON'T get to discipline my daughter. You didn't want her pulling his arm, you stopped her, she and your brother should have respected that you as the parent have the right and duty to say who can and cannot do certain things with/to your child.
