  • I'd probably get angry since I tend to overreact most of the time. I wouldn't believe them.

  • I think I would be offended, but then I would wonder if it's true and want to find out.

  • I would inquire into the incident, and the reason she thinks so, and go from there.

  • I'd ask to sit down and discuss what happened with BOTH children. Since my sons are more often the victims of bullies, I would wonder where the accusation stemmed from.

  • Id be upset and defend my child, but then Id probably calm down and try to find out if its true or not. Bullying is pretty bad anymore and should be dealt with if it is happening.

  • I would tell the other parent I would talk to my child and see what was going on first of all. I would need to know what my child thought about the situation before taking the next step. I would probably talk to their teachers if they were in school to get an objective opinion on it.

  • my defensive instinct would probably take over at first. then id try to be rational and find out what really happened, and if my daughter was the bully id have a serious talk with her.

    however, this has happened before. my friend teachers her daughter its ok to hit back, push back, whatever. and my daughter gets awfully rambunctious at times and runs into people by ACCIDENT. numerous times this has happened, her daughter took it as being pushed and has pushed my child back, then runs out and tells her mom that my daughter pushed her. it pisses me off so bad. cause then my daughter is in tears that her friend pushed her back when she just accidentally bumped her. one of the reasons we don't see them much anymore!
