What do you do if they don't?
In the course of playing, DD got hit by her friend yesterday - no big deal, but of course, she was dramatic about it. Friends mom kept telling him to say he was sorry and he was taken aback and was silent and pouty for a few minutes, but he didn't apologize either. I don't really care, b/c I'm sure DD will get him back another time - and seriously, they're 3 - that's what they do. I've had the same thing happen though, where DD hits/shoves her friend and I really want her to apologize and try to tell her to, but there's no way to force her either. Do you think the right thing is to just to apologize for your kid or do you just leave anytime your kid won't apologize?
