I have a friend who will call or email me if my son dosen't play with her kids are recess. I don't blame my son the kids not behaving the nicest lately, I don't really want him playing with him either. But she often tells me things my son apparently did to her son. I know my sons teacher pretty well and have asked her what's really happening. My son isn't doing these things and he and his friends don't want to play with this boy becaus he's not being nice. He hits, kicks and yells at the kids for no good reason. When he does these things my son will say to him you're not my friend. And rightly so, we've told the kids they do not need to be friends with anyone who makes them feel bad.
Our families have been close in the past but in the last year things have not been so friendly. I really enjoy spending time with the mother but am getting really annoyed at her telling me that my son is doing these things when I know it's her child in the office almost every day for bullying. Now thankfully her kids don't bully my son, but I'm afraid that if I say anything to her that she'll be really upset (she denies that her boys have done anything) and then things will turn out badly for my son at school.
We were at their house on the weekend for a b-day party and her son was pushing kids in the trampoline. He was told to not push so hard. My son finally pushed him back after being pushed several times. He then got out and told the kid he didn't want to be his friend anymore. My friend brought both boys together to have them appologise. Her son yelled sorry at my son and then yelled at his mom because he didin't appologise to him yet. There was no time and my kids know that you should appologise nicely so the other person knows you mean it. My son did appologise and the other kids said they were best friends again. My son said no just friends. This ofcourse sent the other kid off in another yelling fit.
What should I do? I'm tired of her telling me my kid is bullying her's when it's not true and the teachers on duty tell me that's not what happened. And I don't want my son in a friendship like this where he get's yelled at and such. He has other friends at school and away from school and he plays just fine with them, there's no issues with his other friends. So how do I go about telling this woman that I don't want out kids playing together?

Maybe you just have to ignore her then... if she calls and starts in say you have to get off the phone asap... don't acknowledge the wining in an e-mail. She will get the hint eventually. Sorry you are dealing with this ;o(

I have a friend who will call or email me if my son doesn't play with her kids are recess. <<-- I'd simply tell her it's your child choice who they play with... your child is going to make their own friends at school & you are not going to dictate their friendships to them!! I'd also tell her to tell her kid that he needs to tell an adult when the (supposed) bullying is taking place - that way the teachers will deal with it at school and not you and her after the fact. The kid keeps whining to her b/c she is indulging him. I think you basically need to tell her to lay off & you don't want to get in the middle of it.
