I took my boys to their weekly playgroup today, it's at an indoor play are and is open to the public so there are always a lot more kids than just our playgroup. My boys are 2.5 and 1, they absolutely love this playgroup and we go every Friday. While they were playing my 2.5 yr old got excited and tossed a couple wood blocks in the air, 1 of them ended up bonking a 10 year old girl on the arm. I grabbed ds and told him he needed to settle down and be more careful, in the mean time the girl had ran and got her mom before he had a chance to apologize. She comes storming over all pissed off and starts telling me that ds needs to apologize. I said 'I know, it was an accident he is really sorry is she ok?' then I ask ds to say sorry, which he does right away. Then this lady says to my ds 'I don't think you really meant that you need to say it again' . I was totally taken back by that but ds apologizes again and is looking very upset by the situation. This bitch then proceeds to start lecturing him on how to treat girls better and how he needs a time out. Ok that crossed the line, I was about to explode. I kept my cool though as to set a good example for my children and simply said ' you need to back off, I can discipline my own child. It was an accident, he apologized, end of story. ' I really wanted to say a few choice words to this bitch but I refrained, I could not believe her nerve. What would you ladies have done in this situation??
