I'm feeling like such a failure and am wondering why I ever thought I was up to being a mother. Ds went over to a friend's house after school and got into a fight with a neighbor boy. The other boy's father was very upset. My son hit the other boy in the face. I haven't been able to talk to the other parents yet - they took the child to the emergency room to make sure there was no fracture! Ds's friend's Mom was very nice about the whole thing and the other boys say the injured boy grabbed ds by the hair to start the whole thing. Ds hit him to make him let go. I still think that when this is all said and done ds won't be invited over to the friend's house again.
When you have decided what you believe, ...have the courage to stand alone and be counted.
