Yesterday at the playground, DS fell and as he was starting to get back up, an older boy kicked DS in the back and made him fall back down. DS started crying and my H scooped him up.
My H also said "no, no, that's not nice" to the boy who kicked DS. The boy's mother ran over and applogized.
As soon as I heard H say something to the boy, I felt anxious because I hate confrontation and I thought the mother would be angry in a "don't you talk to MY kid" sort of way.
I ask WWYD because H and I discussed the situation later and I am so afraid of confrontation that I don't know if I would have said something to the boy.
